Join us for the official kick-off to NYC Pride!

The first NYC Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969, when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square Park and followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NYC Pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city. In 2013, we marked the opening of our official Pride events on Hudson River Park's Pier 26

We will begin taking talent submissions for the 2016 Rally in October of 2015. Stay tuned for further details.

The March

Become a part of the biggest Pride Celebration in the world!

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 350 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 80 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year's March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.
