As a proud member of NYC Pride, I urge my family and friends to join our community of activists, organizers, politicians, and more as we take a stand against police brutality and discrimination.

As a proud member of NYC Pride, I urge my family and friends to join our community of activists, organizers, politicians, and more as we take a stand against police brutality and discrimination.

NYC Pride is proud to announce a virtual Rally on Friday, June 26, from 5pm - 8pm.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2020-nyc-pride-rally-tickets-1…

Join us and our partners at GLAAD and the National LGBTQ Task Force as we stream live on Facebook and YouTube.

This nontraditional Rally event comes at a time when conversation, education and activism is needed most.

The virtual rally is hosted by trans journalist Ashlee Marie Preston and trans actor Brian Michael Smith and features trans and sex work activist Ceyenne Doroshow, disability activist and YouTuber Annie Segarra, Nigerian author Edafe Okporo, Leandro E. Rodriguez Ramos and many more.

The first Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969, when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NYC Pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city.

Show up in force as a community to change the future and make your voice heard in this re-imagined Rally experience!

Thank you so much!

Be well and stay safe everyone!
