New York's Pride March is where PFLAG had its beginning. In 1972, Jeanne Manford marched in the Christopher Street Liberation Day Parade carrying a sign that read, "Parents of Gays: Unite in Support for Our Children."
The Pride March is still the premier event demonstrating the size, strength, and diversity of our community. Last year, more than 300 groups and 50 floats took part in the march. This year Heritage of Pride has announced that the Pride Grand Marshals will be Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi, Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, and J. Christopher Neal.
PFLAG's Pride Month activities are again supported this year by the Johnson & Johnson family of consumer companies and the Care with Pride™ campaign to make the world a more caring and accepting place for all. This includes taking on Safe Schools issues like bullying, which impacts all families and their children.
