Pride Month is almost here in NYC and we’re ready to celebrate! We’re waving our flags, donning our best fits, and feeling pumped for what the city has in store. (We'll be compiling all the best Pride events here, so stay tuned.)

Join in on the Pride March through the West Village or giant parties at your favorite gay bars with the LGBTQ+ community.

What's this year's NYC Pride theme?

NYC Pride 2024's theme is "Reflect. Empower. Unite." Events will celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and mark the 55th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, as well as the 40th anniversary of Heritage of Pride.

Organizers selected the theme as a way to highlight the importance of the NYC Pride March as the intersection for Queer liberation and joy.

"The theme encourages individuals, advocates, community leaders and allies to reflect on the challenges they have overcome together and empowers them to take action in shaping our collective future," event organizers said in a press release. "At a time of division in our country and the world, this year’s theme calls for unity within and throughout the LGBTQIA+ community and is a call to action for ALL allies, especially those in government and the private sector, to demonstrate their alliance with the community-at-large at this critical time in our nation's history."

Key dates to remember for NYC Pride 2024 

The main event is the Pride March on Sunday, June 30. PrideFest, a street fair, is also on June 30, as are Bliss Days, a celebration of LGBTQIA+ Womxn.
