New York, 1–30 June
NYC Pride is the grandmother of love and equality, with diversity in the DNA of the Big Apple. Yet as Gotham marks the golden jubilee of the LGBT rights movement and plays host to WorldPride, its 2019 celebrations are set to be more flamboyant and more fantastic than ever. It's estimated that three million people will partake in a month-long calendar of events that spans parties, political rallies, street fairs, lectures, family activities and more. Highlights include PrideFest fair in Greenwich Village, a rally at The Stonewall Inn on 28 June and, two days later, the NYC Pride March during which thousands will line the streets to cheer along more than 80 floats and 350 organisations.
