The Pride March

The annual Pride March begins on Saturday, June 25th at 12:00pm. The march is made up of mostly non-profit groups supporting different LGBTQIA+ causes. While marching, you’ll pass by the Stonewall National Monument and the New York City AIDS Memorial.

This event is free for all participants.
