Pride Month is finally here in NYC and we’re ready to celebrate! We’re waving our flags and donning our best fits, and pumped for what the city has in store! (There are so many events!)
NYC Pride 2023 is all about “Strength in Solidarity.”
“This year’s theme highlights the cultural significance of the LGBTQIA+ community within the fabric of modern society, while acknowledging every individual’s uniqueness and ability to wield tremendous power when united with others,” Pride organizers say in a statement. “In a world where platforms of hatred and violence are upheld and even celebrated, NYC Pride seeks to illuminate the good that can and has been accomplished through uplifting and supporting one another. Fear and intimidation only serve to isolate and diminish the community and its allies, but when individuals unite, Strength in Solidarity is truly unlimited.”
