NYC is loud and proud, and celebrations across the city over Pride Weekend definitely showed it!
From festive installations to gatherings to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community to marches to fight against discrimination, the city came out for a beautiful weekend that hadn’t been seen for two years due to the pandemic. Here are some of our favorite shots we’ve been tagged in highlighting the amazing energy in NYC this weekend:
First, though the annual Pride March was mostly virtual this year, many still gathered in the West Village to celebrate and also participate in the Pride Fest street fair as well as the new “pop-ups” that showcased LGBTQ+ artists in front of local businesses for in-person fun this year:
There was also the annual Dyke March, which made its way down Fifth Ave. from Bryant Park to Washington Square Park.
Landmarks shows their love and support by lighting up in Pride Rainbow colors, including:
- The Oculus
- The Empire State Building
- The New York Stock Exchange
- Helmsley Building
- St. John the Divine Cathedral
- Lincoln Center
And streets became covered covering in rainbow for daytime too, with stores and restaurants showing their Pride with fabulous rainbow displays.
