Tuesday, June 11, 2019. New York City – On Saturday, June 8th, 2019, Brooklyn celebrated the 23rd Annual Brooklyn Pride Parade/March. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall revolution.
This is the only New York City night time parade/march. The parade started at Lincoln Place and 5th Ave and ended at 9th Street and 5th Avenue.
The 1 Bronx World Pride Rally, March and Festival will be on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019. Rally/March: 161st and Grand Concourse. Festival: 149th Street and Third Avenue.
Organizers say: “The 1 Bronx World Pride Festival promotes inclusion, community, and dialogue and works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing Pride events that inspire, educate, and celebrate our diverse Bronx community.
Celebrate our diversity together with the 1 Bronx World Pride Rally, March and Festival, bringing together over 20,000 Bronxites working toward a more inclusive future for our community.”
The 27th Annual NYC Dyke March will be on Saturday, June 29th, 2019 at 5PM. Meet at Bryant Park, corner of 6th Ave and 42nd Street. The culmination of the protest will be in Washington Square Park.
Organizers say on their website nycdykemarch.com, “The New York City Dyke March is a protest march, not a parade.
The March is a demonstration of our First Amendment right to protest and takes place without permits or sponsors. We recognize that we must organize among ourselves to fight for our rights, safety, and visibility.
Thousands of Dykes take the streets each year in celebration of our beautiful and diverse Dyke lives, to highlight the presence of Dykes within our community, and in protest of the discrimination, harassment, and violence we face in schools, on the job, and in our communities.
Any person who identifies as a dyke is welcome to march regardless of gender expression or identity, sex assigned at birth, sexual orientation, race, age, political affiliation, religious identity, ability, class, or immigration status.
We ask that our allies respect the march as a space for self identified dykes by supporting us from the sidewalks, or by celebrating with us at the culmination of our protest in Washington Square Park.”
Organizers of the Pride March in Manhattan say on their website NYCPride.org, “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.
The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2018, we were joined by over 550 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 100 floats making the trek along the route, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

Retracing the steps of the original Christopher Street Liberation Day March of 1970, the Reclaim Pride Coalition will gather in Sheridan Square, march all the way up 6th Avenue, and end with a rally in Central Park’s Great Lawn.
Everyone is welcome to join the march at any point. No pre-registration or wristbands are required.
We will gather on 7th Ave south of Christopher Street before stepping off at 9:30am.
We will march one block up 7th Avenue, take a right on West 10th Street over to 6th Avenue and then all the way up 6th Avenue into Central Park.
There will be a midpoint gathering in Bryant Park at 11am where we encourage folks who cannot make the early step off to join the march.
You can join the march at any point by stepping off of the sidewalks into the streets anywhere north of West 23rd Street on 6th Ave. (Below this point it might not be possible due to street blocking for the HOP Pride Parade).
The march will end with a Rally in Central Park’s Great Lawn with disability access on the corner of East 85th Street & 5th Ave. You are welcome to join us here.”
