  • June 28, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of a pivotal and defining moment in the early gay rights movement, which took place in New York City in 1969. In celebration of the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, NYC will host WorldPride 2019 later this month, marking the first time that the global event will be held in the US. With a theme of “Millions of Moments of Pride,” WorldPride 2019 will feature programs throughout June and events, alongside NYC Pride’s march and PrideFest in June. Additionally, the Queens, Brooklyn, and Bronx borough pride celebrations occur this month, while the Year of Pride also features related exhibitions at museums all over the city through the end of the year (stonewall50.org) (nycpride.org).
