Moments of Silence: 1 p.m and 3 p.m
We suggest you bring:
* Comfy Shoes
Our marshals, Candice and Jill, will have the bathroom passes so you can leave the parade and re-enter. If you donâ€™t have the passes you run the risk of the cops not letting you back in. See them first.
This yearâ€™s pride theme is Liberty and Justice For All. Even though the parade is a lot of fun letâ€™s remember how these parades started 41 years ago. Weâ€™re also here to send a message about our community and the things important to us. We encourage you to make signs that reflect that. They can be queer. They can be environmental. They can be both!
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or at the facebook invite.

MANHATTAN “CRITICAL MASS” + DRAG MARCH?!? (aka Revenge of WNBR NYC!) 7pm Union Square North Everyone keeps asking for more naked riding, but we will have to settle for the fact that this month CM coincides with another “un-permitted parade”: The annual NYC Drag March! I will be scantily/sparkly/gender-
bendingly clad myself, and you all should join in the fun! Come early for BODY PAINTING ~5:30pm, as our pro from WNBR can’t get enough either! Police presence will be heavy, so bring lights and bells…our preemptive strike of fabulous skin, wild wigs and sequined-outfits will undo NYPD’s bad motorized mojo.
DRAG DANCE RIDE
10pm Sheridan Square at 7th and Christopher Street
From XsUp web site: “Because forty-one years ago, we learned that nothing says resistance like a street full of queens in six-inch heels. Tonight well have hundreds of them. Plus a sound bike! A festive celebration of bikes, colors, streets and New York’s unique culture of resistance. Drag is what you make it.”
