People’s Protest March Provides Alternative to Corporate, Over-Policed Pride Parade
WHAT: Press Conference to announce details of June 30th massive Queer Liberation March
WHEN: Tuesday, May 14th, Noon
WHERE: Sheridan Square, Seventh Ave. South and Christopher St.
WHO: Reclaim Pride Coalition organizers and dozens of major endorsers
WHY: The annual Heritage of Pride Parade has become a bloated, over-policed circuit party, stuffed with 150 corporate floats. This does not represent the “Spirit of Stonewall” on this 50th anniversary year of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion. It does not address the urgent continuing needs of the Trans, Bisexual, Lesbian, Gay, Queer, Intersex, Two-Spirit, Asexual, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming and related communities — still under daily attack by the Trump administration and by countries around the world.
At this historic milestone, the Reclaim Pride Coalition’s inaugural Queer Liberation March will return this event to the people, celebrating our victories and recommitting to fight our current battles. HOP’s Parade excludes most individual marchers. The Queer Liberation March welcomes all people, tens of thousands from New York, the United States, and overseas, to follow the original route of the 1970 Christopher Street Liberation Day March, from the Stonewall, up Sixth Ave., into Central Park’s Great Lawn for a major rally, on the same day — the traditional last Sunday in June.
There will be a live Facebook feed @QueerMarch starting at 12 p.m.
