” Heritage of Pride is a nonprofit organization that plans and produces New York City’s official LGBT Pride events each year to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969 — the beginning of the modern Gay Rights movement.
Heritage of Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community. NYC Pride
Be a part of history as we kick off the main weekend of NYC Pride.
NYC Pride is taking the Rally back into the streets! LGBTQ rights and human rights are under attack by the current political environment. Join community activists, organizers, politicians, and more for this unprecedented moment in our history. Take a stand, show up in force, and make your voice heard in this re-imagined Rally experience.
The first NYC Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969, when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NYC Pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city. ”
