World Pride NYC 2019/Stonewall 50

In 2015, New York announced that Interpride, the organization that puts on World Pride, had selected the City to host World Pride in 2019.  This marks the first time out of the 5 previous events that World Pride hosted that the event will take place in the United States.

This allows both New York City and the LGBTQ Community to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which took place over 6 nights after New York City Police Officers raided the Stonewall Inn and “attempted” to arrest many of the patrons for doing nothing but living their truth. This lead to the modern movement for both LGBTQ Acceptance and LGBTQ Rights as well.  Something that we are still striving and working towards in 2018 and 2019.

June of 2019, NYC Pride welcomes WorldPride as we mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and the work that we have gone through in the same time for the  LGBTQIA+ liberation.

The events scheduled for 2019 edition of NYCPride and WorldPride will mirror the scope and inclusive nature of both the city itself as well as our LGBTQIA+ community. From the epic size  of the NYC Pride March and the Rally which is the Largest Pride events not including previous World Pride events, as well as the other events including events designed to entertain you, inform you and bring us together in celebration and protest.

The March
Femme Fatale

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 2017, we were joined by over 450+ unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 110 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.
