It’s no question that there’s A LOT to celebrate this summer. We can start going on vacations again. We can jam out at concerts again. We can hug our loved ones again (crazy, I know!) With a renewed sense of all that is good in the world, this year’s Pride Month has been even more joyous than it normally is. As the month is starting to come to a close, some of the best Pride festivities are yet to come! Check out our quick and dirty list of activities you can partake in and ways you can support the incredible Queer community of NYC!

NYC Pride March - Sunday June, 27 @ 12pm
On June 27, New York City is welcoming back its famous Pride March in a reimagined way! Instead of the typical March Float experience, NYC Pride will use the outdoor seating areas of locally owned businesses in Manhattan for Popup activations which can be found via an interactive map. In addition to these in person festivities, the NYC Pride March broadcast special will be showcasing live performances, on-air interviews, and exciting street-side marching activity. The broadcast will air on ABC-7 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm ET.
