We March With Pride This Sunday!
On this, the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, comes the annual Heritage Of Pride March down New York City's Fifth Avenue, along the Lavender Line! I'll be marching with New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, with whom I had the privilege of joining for the Brooklyn and Queens Pride Parades. Also marching with me will be Da Doo Dirty Show hosts DJ Baker and Swanny Rivers, plus Bone Intell and the members of his Out Mobb band, and up-and-coming Hollywood actor, writer, and collegiate speaker Xem Van Adams. Adams is flying in from Los Angeles for NYC Pride weekend, and he's raring to go. Here's a video of him talking about NYC Pride and his upcoming gigs:
In addition to all these luminaries, the New York City Gay And Lesbian Independent Democrats will be among our group of marchers. So come one, come all, to NYC's storied Fifth Avenue or anywhere along the March Route below:
The March steps off on Sunday at 12 Noon, from E. 52nd Street and Fifth Avenue, and follows the route all the way to Greenwich Village, right past the Stonewall Inn, where it all began, and ends at the fabulous Pridefest. Pride Weekend in NYC is jam-packed with events, many of which are listed here. So get your rainbow flags and hot pants, and come out proudly to the biggest LGBT weekend of the year! See you there!
