NYC LGBTQ Pride March + PrideFest

Grand Marshals announced for 2022 NYC Pride March
LGBTQ = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, Queer/Questioning
We’ve participated in past marches as part of the press and the feeling is an exhilerating beyond compare as tens of thousands of participants, on the sidelines, cheer everyone on. All you feel is happiness and love. We’re hoping that, just as in years past, the weather this year cooperates and gives us a well-deserved afternoon of great temps and dry air. Let’s see.
Anyhow, hoping to see you all there. Photos from a past march can be seen near the end of this page below.
Street Festival begins at 11:00 am
4th Avenue between East 8th Street and East 13th Street
Grand Marshals who’ll be leading this year’s celebration are Ts Madison, Punkie Johnson, Schuyler Bailar, Dominique Morgan, and Chase Strangio. Angelica Ross will be returning for a second year as co-host and featured performer of the broadcast special on ABC-7.
The 53rd NYC Pride March will begin at noon on June 26th from 25th Street and 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 and 7th Avenue. More than 75% percent of all marching groups are non-profit organizations, and more than half of all marching groups are participating free-of-charge.
The NYC Pride March broadcast special, co-hosted by Angelica Ross along with WABC’s Ken Rosato, Lauren Glassberg and Sam Champion, will return for its sixth consecutive year. Featuring live performances and on-air interviews, the broadcast will air on ABC-7 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm ET on Sunday, June 26 as well on ABC7NY.com, ABC News Live, and ABC7 New York’s Connected TV Apps on streaming platforms Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku.
