Date: Sunday, June 30, 2019 – Step Off: Noon
Location: 26th Street & 5th Ave

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2018, we were joined by over 550 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates
and activists! With over 100 floats making the trek along the route, last years March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

MEET OUR 2019 LGBTQIA+ NYC PRIDE MARCH GRAND MARSHALS POSE is a dance musical, set in the 1980s, that explores the juxtaposition of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the Trump era, and the downtown social and literary scene. Cast members Dominique Jackson (Elektra), Indya Moore (Angel), and MJ Rodriguez (Blanca) will represent the show.

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah is the nucleus of the award-winning celebration and protest that is UK Black Pride.

Gay Liberation Front was the very first LGBTQ activist organization formed after the Stonewall Rebellion.
