NYC Pride LogoIt’s that time of year again! Yep, we’re entering into Pride season. This year I’ll be venturing out to NYC Pride, which will be taking place June 23-30, 2013, and I’m hoping to see all your crushes there too. Pride week is a great chance for you to not only experience one of the most exciting cities in our nation but to come out and celebrate the gay, lesbian, transgendered (and everything in between) community. I already have made a handy Guide to NYC post with recommendations on where to stay, places to visit and things to do while in the city that you can view here. Now here’s a list of events happening during Pride week to help plan your visit. To stay up to date on official Pride news and events you can visit, follow on Twitter @nycpride or check them out on Facebook. If there’s an NYC Pride event not listed below, share it in the comments section below or send an Email to to get it listed.

The March
Begins at 36th St. & Fifth Ave.
Ends at Christopher & Greenwich Streets
12 p.m. (Step Off)
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect. You can download a map of the march’s route here.

PrideFest is the annual LGBT street fair that combines vendors, entertainers and activities for a day of fun and celebration in the name of equality. PrideFest attracts thousands of out-of-state visitors and brings them together with local residents and families, corporate sponsors, community leaders and area business owners. PrideFest is the perfect place to stop to listen to a few tunes, grab a bite to eat or score some great Pride gear.
