The Episcopal Church Welcomes You



LGBT Pride March 2017
Sunday – June 25 2017
Fifth Avenue, Manhattan

The Diocese of New York will again have a presence in the NYC LGBT Pride March on Sunday, June 25th 2017.

We will be marching with a DJ and a float.   The diocese has taken care of all registration formalities, all you need to do is show up and bring your parish banner.   The exact time and meeting location will not be communicated to us until about a week prior to the march, but it should be sometime around 2:00pm on one of the side streets off Fifth Avenue in the 30s.  While all are welcome to ride on the float at one time or another during the March, preference will be given to those who need to ride.
