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 2015, we were joined by over 325 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 55 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year's March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

Grand Marshal selection begins in the fall of 2014. If you would like to nominate someone to be a 2015 Grand Marshal please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
