As New Yorkers gear up for another colorful Pride weekend, the city is already preparing to host World Pride 2019. It will also mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the birth of Pride.
“As a city with such a rich history of fighting inequality and an unwavering dedication to social progress, we are thrilled to host WorldPride 2019,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “I can think of no better time to celebrate the LGBTQ community than on the 50th anniversary of Stonewall—a seminal moment in the struggle for inclusion and human rights that has reverberated across the country for decades.”
Following the announcement, NYC & Company released a campaign, "One World, One Pride, One New York City — Unite in 2019." It will be featured on more than 100 bus shelters and LinkNYC screens across the five boroughs. The campaign also includes a short video filmed in the West Village with a diverse group of LGBTQ New Yorkers that make up the face of Pride.
