This year’s Grand Marshals are Ts Madison, Punkie Johnson, Schuyler Bailar, Dominique Morgan & Chase Strangio will head this year’s celebration. Bansri Manek, NYC Pride March Director stated, “At a time when LGBTQIA+ people are under increased attack, the NYC Pride March is a beacon of hope & community. Our grand marshals for this year truly embody the spirit of the theme for NYC Pride 2022, ‘Unapologetically Us.’ They have embraced their identities & used their platforms to help members of our community truly love & live their truth without fear or shame. They also exemplify the key themes of our Grand Marshal categories, including Trans Rights Champion, Social Justice Warrior, Behind-the-Scenes, Celebrated Luminary & Youth Activism.” The 53rd NYC Pride March will begin at noon on June 26th from 25th Street & 5th Avenue. Marchers will proceed south on 5th Avenue before heading west on 8th Street. After crossing over 6th Avenue the March will continue on Christopher Street passing the Stonewall National Monument. It will then turn north on 7th Avenue passing the New York City AIDS Memorial before dispersing in Chelsea at 16th Street & 7th Avenue. More than 75% percent of all marching groups are non-profit organizations & more than half of all marching groups are participating free-of-charge. For More Info…
