LGBTQ Pride events, New York City
NYC & Company, New York City’s official destination marketing organisation, proudly highlights the annual LGBTQ Pride events taking place throughout the city as the summer travel season heats up. Recognised as the number one LGBTQ travel destination in the United States, New York City will burst with energy, diversity and a palpable sense of pride this June. At Manhattan, Heritage of Pride, which organises the city’s marquee LGBTQ events and commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots that sparked the modern gay-rights movement will feature the theme ‘Defiantly Different’ for its lineup of Pride events this year. This year’s NYC Pride March also undergoes a change to its iconic route along Fifth Avenue. The new route refocuses the birthplace of the LGBTQ movement to a place of prominence at the beginning of the march. The Bronx Pride Festival promotes inclusion, community and dialogue and works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. These events attract more than two million attendees and the celebrations happening throughout the five boroughs promises to offer visitors an empowering Pride experience.
