Movie Night

Pull out your ruby slippers, because to celebrate the return of our popular Family Movie Night we're featuring The Wizard of Oz! This is one of the only free events for children and LGBT families during Pride Week. This event was a mega success when it launched in 2012.

Enjoy a family-friendly flick, appropriate for all ages, while lounging under the stars on Hudson River Park's Pier 46. Seating, blankets, and tasty treats will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The space will open its doors at 7:30 p.m. and the movie will screen at dusk. Fun games and entertaining performers will be on hand to get the crowd ready.

We hope you and your family can join us on this special evening!

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

For the second year in a row, this all-ages event will call Pier 26 in Tribeca home. Our raven-haired "always keepin' ir real" emcee, Michelle Visage (Rupaul's Drag Race), will be joined by a special performance from Sharon Needles. You won't want to miss a knock-out performance from the amazing Betty Who! 

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 are no longer taking talent submissions for the Rally for the 2014 year.

The March
About The March
Quick Info

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 2013, we were joined by over 300 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 50 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year's March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

Interested in performing on one of our stages? Send all talent submissions to talent@nycpride.org.

#PRIDECAST

NYC Pride is partnering with Google and Mashable to bring the 2014 NYC Pride March live to worldwide audience. #Pridecast will originate from broadcast locations throughout the March route, capturing the best moments of the 44th March and bringing them to every corner of the universe live on YouTube.
