Monday, July 1, 2013. New York City – On Saturday, June 29, was the 21st Annual NYC Dyke March and on Sunday, June 30, was the NYC LGBTQ Pride March.
This year the Grand Marshals were Edie Windsor, Harry Belafonte and Earl Fowlkes.
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration.
Organizers say on their website NYCPRIDE.org that, “This year we’re joined by over 300 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small business, political candidates and activists! With over 50 floats prepped to make the trek down 5th Avenue, this year’s March will be one of the largest and most exciting in history.”
