NYC PRIDE

NYC PRIDE

NYC Pride is one of the biggest and best gay prides in the world; after all, we are talking about the Big Apple.The first NYC Pride celebration took place a month after the Stonewall riots in June 1969, which marked the beginning of the modern gay rights movement. 500 people gathered for a rally in Washington Square Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NYC Pride continued this tradition of pride by hosting the event at various locations throughout the city. The march passes the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, location of the June 1969 Stonewall riots.
