There’s no doubt about it: 2018 was a banner year for LGBTQ representation in America, what with mainstream favorites like Netflix’s Queer Eye and FX’s Pose offering record visibility in media and LGBTQ political candidates making unprecedented gains in the fall midterm elections. It’s fitting now that in 2019, WorldPride is landing in the US—specifically, New York City—for the first time ever in its 20-year history. The global celebration (with events running through June) will welcome thousands of international guests to our city to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic Stonewall Uprising, a landmark event in the history of LGBTQ rights. Whether you partake in New York’s Pride festivities every year or have never been to a single march, the festival is sure to be one for the books. Here, we’ve rounded up ten can’t-miss activities to check out during WorldPride.
