Another year, another NYC Pride. Of course, New York Pride has quite a few annual events we come to expect, like the Pride March and the Dance on the Pier. But, in a city this size, that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the parties and events taking place in all five boroughs.
And no matter what subsets of the community you identify with (or non-conform to), there's almost certainly something for you. Happy Pride!

"At this event, we will mingle with the history makers who spearheaded the Gay Rights movement from those who fought back at the Stonewall riots, to those who brought the AIDS epidemic to the world's attention, and others who fought for equality across all aspects of the LGBT community.
Some of our honored guests will tell their stories, addressing key turning points in history. With this event, we will continue to bridge the gap between generations and remind us all that there are many reasons to be proud, and so much more work to do."
