New York City Pride March 2020 Preview
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the NYC Pride parade will be a virtual event this year, in compliance with ongoing social distancing orders in New York City. The event, broadcast on ABC, runs for 2 hours from 12 pm until 2 pm ET.
While Pride is normally a heavily attended in-person parade celebration through Manhattan (an event that is not currently possible with COVID-19), this year’s Pride has been carefully scheduled to make sure that all attendees can still participate safely, from the comfort of their homes.
On NYC Pride’s website, they encourage attendees to “Join NYC Pride in 2020 as we virtually advocate, educate and celebrate for an inclusive and equal future without discrimination.” Ahead of the June 28 march, NYC Pride programmed over 50 events in support of the LGBTQIA community. You can find their full list of offerings here.
According to NYCPride.org, Artists including Janelle Monáe, Deborah Cox, Billy Porter, Luísa Sonza, Rufus Wainwright, Michael James Scott, Tangina Stone, and Monét X Change are anticipated to perform. Coco & Breezy will be DJ the event and premiering their new single, entitled “Convo.” The event will also include guest appearances from Angelica Ross, MJ Rodriguez, Wilson Cruz, Miss Richfield 1981, Margaret Cho, Gloria Estefan, Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest, Tamron Hall, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tituss Burgess, Scott Turner Schofield, and Tatiana Maslany.
The 2020 Grand Marshalls for the parade’s 50th Anniversary celebration are Dan Levy, The Ali Forney Center, Yanzi Peng, and Victoria Cruz. The ABC 7 broadcast is hosted by Ken Rosato, Lauren Glassberg,
Ahead of the march, which marks the conclusion of NYC Pride festivities for the month of June, NYC Pride hosted a cooking webinar series. Their last “Savor Pride” webinar was on June 27, featuring Chef Liz Alpern.
NYC Pride also made a call to action in the form of a virtual rally on June 26. In their description of the event, which took its cues from the first Rally in 1969 (one month after the Stonewall Riots), they wrote, “Hosted by trans journalist Ashlee Marie Preston and trans actor Brian Michael Smith, join the community as we rally together to take a stand against police brutality and discrimination. Show up in force as a community to change the future and make your voice heard in this re-imagined Rally experience.”
