The biggest event Pride is known for is The March, as the very first March in 1970 is what sparked the movement we currently have today. This year is the 54th year of The March, and it’s promising to be just as grand as years before. Beginning at noon, participants can march through Madison Square Park, Greenwich Village and Chelsea and celebrate their history in the neighborhood streets. The route includes several LGBTQ+ landmarks along the path, including the Stonewall National Monument and the New York City AIDS Memorial. This year’s March will be led by five grand marshals made up of various LGBT+ celebrities and activists, including Punkie Johnson, Schuyler Bailar Chase Strangio, Ts Morgan and Dominique Morgan.
