By Charlotte Robinson, April 12, 2019
NYC Pride, the official host of World Pride 2019 & Stonewall 50 have announced its five Grand Marshals slated to lead both the 50th NYC Pride March on Sunday, June 30th & this year’s commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. The cast of POSE, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Gay Liberation Front, The Trevor Project & Monica Helms will head this year’s celebration. POSE cast members Dominique Jackson (Elektra), Indya Moore (Angel) & MJ Rodriguez (Blanca) will represent the show. Phyll Opoku-Gyimahis is a community builder & organizer; a Kaleidoscope Trust Trustee; an Albert Kennedy Trust patron; Diva Magazine columnist & public speaker focusing on race, gender, sexuality & class. Gay Liberation Front was the very first LGBTQ activist organization formed after the Stonewall Rebellion. The Trevor Project is the world's largest suicide prevention & crisis intervention organization for our LGBTQ young people. Monica Helms is a transgender activist, author & veteran of the United States Navy, having served on two submarines. She is also the creator of the Transgender Pride Flag, in 1999 & subsequently donated the original flag to the Smithsonian Institution in 2014. Julian Sanjivan, NYC Pride March Director stated, “In a world where LGBTQIA+ people continue to experience profound oppression, the NYC Pride March is a beacon of hope & community. This June 30th, that beacon will shine the brightest it ever has when POSE, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Gay Liberation Front, The Trevor Project & Monica Helms lead 115,000 marchers in the largest display of LGBTQIA+ pride the world has ever seen.”
