Go to NYC Pride

The first Pride march in New York City was held on June 28, 1970 on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.

NYC has long been regarded as one of the most gay-friendly destinations, on the planet, home to the largest LGBTQ+ community in the US and the birthplace of the Pride movement, it is a city with which gay liberation will forever be synonymous.

Held on 28, June 1970 to commemorate the demonstrations that took place the previous year following the police raid of the Stonewall Inn (a gay bar situated in the Greenwich Village neighborhood) NYC’s inaugural pride marked a hugely important moment in the history of gay rights, and to this day, remains one of the best and biggest on the planet, with the most recent edition attracting an incredible 5 million attendees!
