Pride lives on! While we are not able to be together in person (yet), it doesn’t mean that we have to put Pride on hold. Virtual New York Pride will take place on Sunday June 14th as part of a month long celebration of the LGBTQ community!
Virtual NY Pride will deliver all the much-anticipated elements of Pride that build community, inspire and empower hundreds of thousands and help to save lives. Some of the events for Virtual NY Pride include a 5K race, a special Pride LGBTQ Exhibit and programs recognizing local LGBTQ heroes in partnership with the LaGuardia Airport Redevelopment and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, a LGBT Youth Prom and a Virtual NY Pride live streaming event on Sunday, June 14th featuring a parade, live and recorded performances from local artists and celebrities, speakers, special guests and more!
And in lieu of the traditional individual Grand Marshals for Pride, The Virtual NY Pride celebration will be honoring and recognizing all the LGBTQ heroes on the frontlines fighting COVID-19. We are so thankful and proud of our LGBTQ and allied community members risking themselves on the frontlines to take care of everyone. Each and every one of them will be our Grand Marshals. Their stories of bravery and courage will be told throughout the entire month and a special portion of the livestream event on June 14th will be dedicated to our brave heroes.
