WorldPride in New York
In the early hours of June 28, 1969, a monumental moment in history occurred in the streets of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. The incidents that took place ignited a global movement for equality, and this year marks the fiftieth anniversary of that historic morning. Pride is always an epic occasion in Manhattan, but this year will truly be something spectacular with the celebration of WorldPride NYC 2019 and Stonewall 50.
With millions of visitors from around the world and over fifty events in honor of five decades of progress, June in New York will be a once-in-a-lifetime, citywide celebration. Heritage of Pride, a nonprofit organization that plans and produces New York City’s official LGBTQIA+ Pride events each year works with a clear, defined mission “toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community.”
This year’s celebration will include a multitude of events, exhibits, parties, rallies—and, of course, New York City’s iconic Pride March. There’s so much to see, explore, and do, but if you plan on attending, we recommend booking your travel needs now. NY Pride always makes for a packed city, but since NY Pride will simultaneously host WorldPride 2019, the celebration will be bigger than ever, with over four million in expected attendance. The Row NYC has teamed up with WorldPride as an official hotel partner to offer visitors special discounts and offerings. Booking must be made at the link (here) to redeem.
