“In a world where LGBTQIA+ people continue to experience profound oppression, the NYC Pride March is a beacon of hope and community," said NYC Pride March Director Julian Sanjivan.

The NYC Pride Parade is expecting 115,000 marchers this year, making it the largest LGBTQIA+ Pride event in history. Here’s everything you need to know about 2019 New York City Pride parade from when it starts, the route and even what areas to avoid.
