Flatiron Pride Roundup

On June 28, 1969, the uprising at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village sparked a week-long protest for the civil rights of the LGBTQ community. Fifty years later, New York City honors the legacy of LGBTQ advocacy in NYC with a month-long WorldPride commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising.

As the largest Pride celebration in the world, New York City is featuring Pride events throughout the month of June and businesses in the Flatiron District will be offering special deals. The annual Pride parade kicks off on Sunday, June 30th at 12 pm in the heart of the Flatiron District at 26th Street and Fifth Avenue.
