Gay Pride in NYC is much more than just a parade. People come from all over the world every June to celebrate gay rights with tons of LGBT things to do that culminate in the Pride parade–NYC's biggest gay party. The festivities commemorate the Stonewall riots, which launched the gay-rights movement—that's why the Pride parade is technically a march, not a parade. But it's still one hell of a celebration. We’ve got everything you need to enjoy the parade to its fullest, including the full Pride parade route, fun June events and tons of gay club nights and parties. Check out awesome photos of the NYC LGBT Pride March if you need to see it for yourself.
