Start: 5th Avenue and 52nd Street
New York City Gay Pride is right on up there as one of the biggest and best gay prides in the globe. In 2017 around 2 million people enjoyed New York City’s largest Gay Pride March ever, with about 30,000 taking part in the actual procession. Pride means different things to everyone, which is why New York City Gay Pride offers a whole heap of LGBT activities during the celebrations.
The official New York City Gay Pride march takes place on Sunday 24 June. Amazingly, in 2017 over 100 floats made the usual trek down Fifth Avenue, so expect even more in 2018.
New York City Pride also features OutCinema (18 June), a celebration of LGBTQ pride and community on film, the Fantasy Pride Party (22 June), the VIP rooftop party (23 June), Youth Pride for LGBT teens (23 June) and Pride Island (23 and 24 June), a fantastic two-day cultural and musical experience. Aussie pop icon Kylie Minogue is confirmed to headline the closing night of Pride Island on 24 June, showcasing tracks from her new album, Golden.
Finally, to mark the end of the week’s festivities, a huge firework display will light up the skies of the Big Apple on Sunday 24 June. NYC Gay Pride definitely knows how to go out with a bang!
