After 48 years of marches, protests, boycotts and balls, the revolution will finally be televised.
After the 2016 Gay Pride March welcomed two million participants and 35 marching garrisons, it seems that NYC's LGBTQ community has become too loud to ignore, and now local affiliate station WABC-TV is getting in on the action. The Tri-state area channel will air this year's march and connected festivities live from noon–3pm on Channel 7, along with a feed streaming on abc7ny.com. The network will also cover PrideFest, the Pride Luminaries brunch, the Rally and the brand-new Pride Island music festival, which features Tegan and Sara, Years & Years and Patti Labelle.

If you're planning on marching but haven't come out to your Meemaw in New Jersey yet, you better make your phone call now, because she will definitely spot you in a Carmen Miranda headdress singing "We Are Family" from a lube float while she's flipping channels. Just a suggestion.
