The organizers of New York City Pride and the annual New York City Pride March, has named Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black actress and activist), Rea Carey (executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force) and Jonathan Groff (Looking, C.O.G., Glee) as grand marshals for the parade.
In a statement march director David Studinski said, "Our 2014 marshals are leaders in brilliant forms of activism through which LGBT people and their allies engage. Individually, they represent the diversity within the LGBT community and the various struggles our community members have and continue to face. Collectively, their stories reinforce that no voice is too small nor weak to make change in our world - and it starts with being yourself."
This year's Pride celebration, themed "We have won when we're one," marks the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in 1969, which marked the beginning of the modern LGBT rights movement.
The parade begins on June 29 at noon, and starts in midtown at 36th Street and goes down Fifth Avenue to the West Village. Want to register your group? You've got until June 7, space permitting.
