The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

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!”

When most people see the acronym “LGBTQ” they are fairly certain what the first four letters stand for. “L,” of course, stands for “lesbian;” “G” is for gay; “B” stands for “bisexual” and “T” means “transgender.” But the “Q,” which represents the word “queer,” is harder to define.

So what exactly does it mean to be “queer”?

"Mercy for animals"
"PRIDE is illegal in Russia, so we're marching there virtually. Tweet #VirtualPride VirtualPride.org" the sign says.

"New York, stop confiscating condoms from sex workers."

El Sábado, 29 de Junio se realizó la 21 marcha anual Dyke y el Domingo, 30 de Junio del 2013, se realizó la marcha (desfile como algunas personas le llaman) 43 del orgullo Lesbico, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer en Manhattan, Ciudad de Nueva York. Los condados de Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn y Staten Island tienen sus propios eventos. La marcha en Manhattan es la más grande.

La primera marcha se realizó en 1970 y desde entonces se ha convertido en una demonstración anual por los derechos civiles de la comunidad LGBTQ o LGBTI, para algunas personas que piensan Queer es ofensivo.

Activistas, políticos, organizaciones sin fines de lucro, corporaciones, y muchos otros participaron. Los participantes tenían mensajes sobre “Stop and Frisk”, DOMA, animales, Bradley Manning, entre otros.

DOMA was declared unconstitutional.

“A broad coalition came together to call for freedom for Bradley Manning, gay soldier and wikileaks whistleblower, at the NYC Gay Pride Parade.”

Aproximadamente 400-500 personas marcharon en apoyo de Bradley Manning. Manning is un hombre gay que estaba en el ejercito y dio a conocer información sobre lo que el gobierno de los Estados Unidos de América estaba haciendo. Actualmente se encuentra preso y en juicio después de esperar tres años.

Edward Snowden es otro hombre de USA que dio a conocer información sobre el gobierno de los Estados Unidos de América y actualmente se encuentra en Rusia.
