NYC PRIDE MARCH – SUNDAY JUNE 30TH 2019

The first NYC Pride 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 lost to illness, violence and neglect. The NYC Pride March is a celebration of our lives and our community. With over 100 floats taking part, last year’s march was one of the largest and most exciting in the city’s history.

PrideFest is the perfect place to stop to listen to a few tunes, grab a bite to eat or score some great pride gear. And the best part is, attendance is totally free!

PRIDE ISLAND – JUNE 2019
