The event will include speeches and theater performances that remind us of what happened in June 1969, celebrate what we have achieved, and encourage us to continue fighting for what still needs to happen.
4. Shop for Pride & Medium clothing in the Phluid Project
One of my favorite LGBTQ shops in NYC is the Project & # 39; Phluid-Dress Shop-mediated clothing and community forum & # 39; 2018. The small coffee on site hosts many events for LGBTQ New Yorkkers from all walks of life. , and the clothing offered is always on-site!
Maybe you saw Samantha Bee and Patti Harrison on their new store and tub? And many other items for sale at the beautiful – though sometimes a bit expensive if you are on a budget.

As of December 2019, the Brooklyn Museum will also be on display No One Will Promise You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall. Taking its title from the vocabulary of transgender and active artist Marsha P. Johnson, the presentation focuses on the impact of the Stonewall Revolution through works by contemporary artists.
6. Learn about the local Arts of Steel
And when it was Museum of the City at this year's Spring Clothing Institute Exhibition, Camp: Articles on Clothing featured nearly 200 fashion items from 17th century in the camp about the camp. The show, which opens at the annual Met (hosted by none other than Lady Gaga), was partly inspired by the 1964 "Notes on Camp" written by Susan Sontag.
7. Take an LGBTQ History Tour
In the middle of all events and activities during the Month of Honor, make sure you set aside time to explore NYC's unique & # 39; LGBTQ & # 39; s history. City & # 39; Adventures & # 39; runs a fun arts scene through Greenwich Village which has many unexpected LGBTQ + historical characters, in addition to major historical references.

On June 30, the annual Pride parade takes place on the streets of Manhattan. Starting at noon and is expected to last up to 8 + hours, more than 150,000 attendees are waving flags and glitters to celebrate.
Countless brands and sponsors will be there to promote LGBTQ + advocacy rights and millions of viewers, expected to be the largest LGBTQ + event in the world.
12. Pride Claim in March Freedom
The First March of Freedom is people political touring – there was no real estate company, no police walking. The First Year of Independence Day on June 30 will be back in action from Christopher Street Independence Day in March 1970
Those wishing to participate will gather at Sheridan Arts, which will continue until 6th Avenue, and end up in Central Park's Great Lawn. It is an important reason to recognize where the LGBTQ modern-day rights movement came from, and how far it has gone.
13. Get your perfect Instagram picture from one of 50 LGBTQ street art galleries
Listen, I'm not an Instagram fan, but I find that everyone is always looking for that perfect photo spot. And it looks like the NYC Pride knows it, too!
The WorldPride Mural project features 50 local and international artists who have been invited to create glasses in all five boroughs in New York City. The characters have different scores and dimensions and represent the full diversity of the LGBTQ community.
I'm not sure how many lenses are designed to survive after the NYC Pride, but it certainly added a lot of color to the city already.
