TOP LIVE EVENTS
The number of pride events hosted and enjoyed by gay communities across the world has increased exponentially in recent years - you'll find large scale and lively pride parades in global locations as diverse as San Francisco, Sydney, London, Berlin, Las Vegas, Sao Paulo, Miami and Toronto.
One place that tends to top the list when it does anything though is New York, and the NYC Pride festival has now expanded way beyond a simple parade, there is now a whole week of events right across the city, from the rally that kicks everything off to the Pridefest music festival and parties and celebrations in bars and nightclubs all around town.
There are a number of events taking place in New York as part of the Pride festival, with the rally representing the culmination of the week's celebrations.
The parade starts at 36th Street and Fifth Avenue, travels down 5th and ends at Christopher Street and Bleecker.
There will be announcers on Fifth at 8th, 25th and 36th, as well as at the parade finish.
Starting at noon, the first participants take a couple of hours to reach the end of the parade route, with the full parade normally completed by 6pm, at which point the party really starts!
