NYC Pride March

Gay Pride in NYC means anyone and everyone can let their queer flag fly throughout the month, from Queens to Staten Island. If you're amped up about gay rights at this critical moment in U.S. history, be sure to join the Kickoff Rally, to be held this year at Pier 26 on June 27, or raise your voice at the parades held in four of the boroughs throughtout June (the Bronx celebrates Pride in July). While there is still plenty of work to do, a lot has been achieved since that hot night at the Stonewall more than 40 years ago. So join the protest action at the Dyke March, the party scene at the Dance on the Pier or any number of other queer events all over town. Raise a glass to those who paved the way, and make a toast to a proud tomorrow.
