NYC to host WorldPride 2019 during Stonewall 50th anniversaryNew York City is proud to play host to WorldPride 2019, at the same time as the commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall riots. This will be the first time the global LGBT Pride event will be celebrated in the United States.

“The Stonewall Uprising is considered the most significant event that ignited the modern LGBT rights movement, so it makes perfect sense to bring WorldPride to the birthplace of Pride in 2019,” said David Schneider, NYC Pride’s Stonewall 50 Director, “We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organizers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion.”

The theme for WorldPride 2019 and the Stonewall 50 commemoration is ‘Million of Moments of Pride’, and will feature an expanded two-month series of events and programs in conjunction with the annual Pride March, Rally, PrideFest, and dance parties. It is anticipated to be the largest LGBT event in history to ever occur.

WorldPride has previously been hosted in Rome, Jerusalem, London, and Toronto. WorldPride 2017 will be held in Madrid, Spain.
