NYC Pride

LGBT in New York City

Gay Pride Month culminates in a major march down Fifth Ave on the last Sunday of the month. Since 1970, the march, the largest of its kind in the world, has been as much a civil rights demonstration as a celebration. It's a five-hour spectacle of floats, dancers, drag queens, gay police officers, leathermen, lesbian soccer moms and representatives of just about every other queer scene under the rainbow.
