NYC Pride 2022

June 17, 2022 | 4 min Read

The entire month of June is Pride Month; and we have a round up of some of the most memorable and fun ways to participate in the festivities and advancement of rights for all persons. Love is love.

Pride March

The coup de grace of Pride Month is June 26th, which marks the Pride March to memoralizes the homosexual homicide by the police in 1969 at the raids on the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenich Village. Today, it has evolved into a celebration of expressions of acceptance and love regardless of gender preference the world over. The parade is one of the biggest in New York with over 2 million visitors. And it attracts a big crowd for good reason! It’s also one of New York’s most decorative, debaucherous and wild parades.

The floats are not to be missed, nor is the dancing, the drag queens or costumes of spectators. It’s a time for flamboyant self-expression marking a celebration of unity, love, dignity and respect that is at the heart of the LGBTQIA+ movement. The parade moves through 5th Avenue (Madison Square Garden) to Greenwich Street and passes the somber Stonewall National Monument. It ends at Pier 54 with an oversized party.

For more information on Pride Month, see the NYC Pride.

History Discussion on Queer Art and Culture

During the 1970s and ‘80s New York City’s decrepit West Side Peers were a space where gay and lesbians went to hang out. Today, New York City piers continue to serve as queer hangouts, but the landscape of LGBTQIA+ culture has changed dramatically. Learn about the history of the West Side piers and how their reclamation by the LGBTQIA+ community shaped New York in this engaging discussion.

This local history discussion will take place with Stefanos Milkidis, CUNY and Pratt Institute professor and the director the Queer Space Studies Initiative and Dr. Aditi Paul, professor at Pace University and author of The Current Collegiate Hookup Culture. The discussion will explore the experiences of queer communities in New York City from the radical to the digital. For more information, see the NYCPL website. The talk is free but registration is required.
