New York City’s largest Progress Pride Flag was unveiled last week at Roosevelt Island.
This is not the first time the steps of Four Freedoms Park were painted for Pride. In 2019, Four Freedoms Park launched “Ascend With Pride,” coloring the steps with the Pride Flag.
However this year’s installation displays the Progress Pride flag which includes the rainbow combined with the Transgender Pride flag and black and brown stripes to represent marginalized LGBTQIA members.
The colorfully painted staircase is a 100-by-30-foot installation specifically created for Pride Month.
The waterfront flag was announced to the public the first week of June, and will remain on view through Thursday, June 30.
According to Four Freedoms Park Conservancy President Howard Axel, “We are encouraging everyone to visit the 100×30 flag, the biggest Progress Pride Flag in NY, take a selfie, #4freedomspark, and encourage the conversation about inclusion and the Four Freedoms – celebrate Pride Outside,” reported Roosevelt Islander.
The vibrant staircase can be found on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island. When you visit, be sure to tag any photos on social media tagging @4freedomspark!
