NYC Pride 2024 Is Right Around The Corner!

NYC Pride 2024’s theme is Reflect, Empower, Unite.

Pride Month is right around the corner!

New York City Pride has unveiled the details for their 54th annual march this year. The march will kick off on the final Sunday of the month, June 30, at 11 am.

The march officially steps off at 25th Street and 5th Avenue, heading west down 8th Street. The march passes by the Stonewall National Monument on Christopher Street and the NYC AIDS Memorial on 7th Avenue, before ending on 16th Street and 7th Avenue, according to TimeOut.

NYC Pride 2024’s theme is Reflect, Empower, Unite.

“The theme encourages individuals, advocates, community leaders and allies to reflect on the challenges they have overcome together and empowers them to take action in shaping our collective future,” event organizers said in a press release. “At a time of division in our country and the world, this year’s theme calls for unity within and throughout the LGBTQIA+ community and is a call to action for ALL allies, especially those in government and the private sector, to demonstrate their alliance with the community-at-large at this critical time in our nation’s history.”
