Date and Time
Friday, 6-22-18 5 p.m. — 7 p.m.
Be a part of history as we kick off the main weekend of NYC Pride.
NYC Pride is taking the Rally back into the streets! LGBTQ rights and human rights are under attack by the current political environment. Join community activists, organizers, politicians, and more for this unprecedented moment in our history. Take a stand, show up in force, and make your voice heard in this re-imagined Rally experience.
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, 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.
General Admission is FREE and available for all! No tickets required.
The stage performances will be ASL interpreted.
If you or your organization would like to submit to become a speaker of the 2018 Rally, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
