Gay Pride celebration on city street with Rainbow American flag

In June 1969 the Stonewall Riots took place in New York’s Greenwich Village, catalyzing the modern LGBT rights movement. Now, nearly 50 years later, June is widely recognized as LGBT Pride Month with celebrations in towns and cities across the world. New York’s own official Pride Parade will take place on Sunday, June 24. For those who’ve joined us in past years, be aware that the 2018 parade route will be slightly different this time around. The procession kicks off at the corner of 16th St & 7th Ave., then makes it way down 7th Ave. before hanging a right on Christopher St and onward to W. 8th St. The parade then turns north on 5th Ave. and continues for over 20 blocks, concluding at 29th St. & 5th. New York expects over 110 spectacular floats and millions of even more spectacular revelers. Of course, the entire week leading up to the parade will be one continuous celebration at the various LGBT bars and clubs around the city. We hope you’ll consider making the Hotel Hayden your home base here during your week of Pride!
