June 19: 2010 GAY PRIDE RALLY


Saturday, June 19th, 4:00 - 8:00 PM

72nd St. & 5th Ave. @ Rumsey Playfield Central Park

Please join the official NYC LGBT Pride Rally!

The Rally will feature well-known performers and motivating speakers from the LGBT community to kick-off this year's Pride Week events

The first NYC LGBT Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969 when 500 people gathered for a "Gay Power" demonstration in Washington Square Park. It was followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. From 1997 to 2009, the Rally was held in Bryant Park.

Now, the 2010 Rally is delighted to be moving to Central Park's SummerStage in Rumsey Field, 5th Ave and 72nd St.

This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are necessary.

The entire Rally will be ASL interpreted for individuals who are deaf/hard-of-hearing.

Bravo on both noting and for the parade having an ASL sign language interpreter.
