This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and half a century of LGBTQIA+ liberation. The first NYC Pride March was held in 1970 and the march has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and remembrance of those we have lost to illness, violence, and neglect. In May, the Financial Times reported an AIDS treatment breakthrough that could mean the end of the AIDS pandemic.
This year’s NYC Pride March is on Sunday, June 30th. Festivities and celebrations are happening the entire month of June.
