Virtual New York City Pride Celebration

The NYC Pride March first took place in 1970 when brave revolutionaries in the LGBTQIA+ community took a stand for equal rights. It is an all-inclusive event that brings together communities. It’s a place where LGBTQIA+ can be celebrated and there is a remembrance for those in the past and present who face persecution.

Finding support and empowerment for the strength displayed by those who have and continue to be discriminated against for their identity. Beginning in 1970 with the Stonewall Inn, this Pride event is a celebration of love in its entirety. Each year the march works towards fostering love, acceptance and growth towards all sexualities, races and gender identities.

Every year, millions of people travel to New York City in order to relish in the acceptance that the march garners. Whether attendees are marching for themselves or a loved one, it is important that the event continues, despite any conflicts. Though this event originally was scheduled to take place in person, it has been moved to a virtual format to stay within the quarantine protocols currently in place in New York to keep everyone safe.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the event is virtual! All you have to do is visit the site and enjoy the great feats of the LGBTQIA+ community.
