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.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST EVENTS OF NYC PRIDE RETURNS FOR ITS 3RD SMASH YEAR TO THE LEGENDARY HAMMERSTEIN BALLROOM.

Join over 3,500 of the hottest men and women from around the world at the main Saturday event of NYC Pride as Masterbeat presents an all new theme—Graffiti—and transforms the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom with its legendary production featuring: six points of line array concert sound, full color lasers, 3D LED visuals, and shows that are beyond your imagination.

For Pride 2016, we’re taking you back to the streets of New York. Remember the old NYC? Let’s go back…back to a time when NYC was edgy and alive with the beat. We'll be “breaking" all the rules as we transform the Hammerstein into the streets of NYC. Feel the rhythm and the hustle of NYC on the subway and then back on the stoop! It will be a night like no other with an old school look and feel. This is NYC and in NYC we do it like no other city in the world!

This year, we’re excited to present NYC with the debut of superstar producer and remixer Oscar Velazquez alongside Masterbeat resident DJ Micky Friedmann.

Graffiti is included in our NYC Pride Weekend Pass or you can purchase individual tickets and VIP tickets directly at masterbeat.com.

The theme this year is “Grafitti” as Hammerstein is transformed into a venue dedicated to higher learning.

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.
