When the Gay Pride March first began in NYC, it wasn’t just a rainbow-saturated celebration. In 1970, a couple hundred people marched up Sixth Avenue to honor the first anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots. More than 40 years later, 1.6 million people attended the 2015 Gay Pride parade and there’s no shortage of Gay Pride events in NYC. Take a look back at the history of the NYC Pride March with these photos from 1970 all the way to 2015.
