After a two year hiatus, New York Citys Pride March is returning in full force for 2022. With Grand Marshalls Ts Madison, Punkie Johnson, Schuyler Bailar, Dominique Morgan and Chase Strangio, the activists and creatives leading this vibrant event span LGBTQIA+ interests and culture.

The 2022 New York City Pride March kicks off up at Madison Square Park, continuing down Fifth Avenue before crossing westward along 8th Street and Christopher Street, ending at Seventh Ave and 15th Street. This event is free and open to the public, and bright colors, pride flags and joyous attitudes are encouraged.
