This is the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in NYC & this year’s theme is Reflections of Pride: Stonewall 45. The first March was held in 1970 & since then has become an annual LGBT civil rights event. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS & to remember those we have lost to illness & violence. The March begins Sunday June 29th at 12:30P down 5th Avenue. This year’s Grand Marshals are Laverne Cox from ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK & who recently graced the cover of TIME MAGAZINE, Rea Carey, Executive Director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force & Jonathan Groff who currently stars as Patrick
on the hit HBO television series, LOOKING. PrideFest will follow now in its 20th year with its the annual LGBT street fair that combines vendors, entertainers & activities for a day of fun & celebration in the name of equality. This is a fabulous place to stop to listen to a few tunes, grab a bite to eat or score some great Pride gear. Then there’s the Dance on the Pier that was nominated as "Circuit Party of the Year". NYC Pride is planning to make 2014 amazing by booking incredible talent & provide support to even more community groups. HAPPY PRIDE!!
