Join PFLAG NYC at the Pride March on Sunday, June 24

PFLAG NYC in the NYC Pride March

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 the premier event demonstrating the size, strength, and diversity of our community. Last year, more than 450 groups and 110 floats took part in the biggest March ever.

March with PFLAG NYC at NYC Pride

This year there are a number of changes to the Pride March. The route is different and our group is limited to a maximum of 200 marchers. All PFLAG NYC marchers will have to pre-register and will be given a wristband that will allow them into the March area. Last year we had more than 250 people march with us, so unfortunately demand exceeds the number of spots available. We will be distributing spots to march with us to those who pre-register and the final distribution of spots will be done randomly. Please let us know you’d like the change for a spot to march by pre-registering on EventBrite.

  • WHAT: 2018 NYC LGBT Pride March
  • WHEN: Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 2:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • WHERE: The Pride March has a new route for 2018. It starts on 7th Avenue at 16th Street. PFLAG NYC’s meeting time in the March Formation area is 4 p.m. We will have a gathering for marchers from 2:30-3:45 p.m. near the Formation area at which we will distribute wristbands to confirmed marchers and will contact confirmed marchers with all the details. All together, plan on committing to 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. if you want to take part in the March. Please pre-register now if you want to have a chance for a spot to march.

There is no cost to march with PFLAG NYC, but we suggest making a contribution of $20 per marcher if you are able. Making a tax-deductible contribution helps cover our costs of the Pride March and also supports all PFLAG NYC’s year-round services.

We will provide PFLAG NYC Marchers with limited-edition 45th Anniversary t-shirts that we hope you will wear with Pride. When you register, we’ll contact you for sizing information. T-shirts will be distributed as long as supplies last, but a t-shirt will be guaranteed for those who contribute at least $20 per shirt.

Even if you can’t march with PFLAG NYC, won’t you consider making a contribution to help underwrite our March participation? The impressive sea of PFLAG marchers will show just how many families and friends are ready to stand up for their LGBT loved ones. Please donate to help us show our colors!
