The gay pride parade will return this year to the streets of New York on June 26, after the interruption of the pandemic, which forced it to be canceled in 2020 and to hold a “virtual parade” the following year.
The parade will start at 12 noon on Fifth Avenue (intersection with 25th Street) in which almost all the mass marches in the Big Apple begin, and will pass through several places that have marked the memory of the city’s gay movement.
Among them, there will be the Stonewall National Monument, in Greenwich Village, erected in tribute to the 1969 Stonewall uprising to claim rights for the homosexual community, and the Memorial for the victims of AIDS, a disease that particularly affected gay men.
The motto that presides over the 2022 parade is “Unapologetically Us” and among the personalities who will preside over the march are some of the most prominent or mediatic members of the LGTBQ community.
This year the best-known transgender dominate among these personalities, such as Ts Madison, host of several television programs; athlete Schuyler Bailar and attorney and activist Chase Strangio; They are joined by the actress and writer Punkie Johnson or the black activist Dominique Morgan.
The parade will be broadcast live on the ABC-7 channel, in a program that will be presented by another well-known transgender, Angelica Ross, actress in American Horror Story and who has founded a company to provide jobs to trans people in the world of technology.
New York, the city where the entire homosexual vindication movement began in the United States and from there it spread to the rest of the world, is possibly the city in the country with the greatest acceptance of the homosexual community, starting with the mayor’s office itself: Mayor Eric Adams himself frequently speaks out in support of the rights of the LGTBQ community.
