PRIDE MARCH STEPS OFF IN NYC

By Black Radio Network Staff

LGBTQGeneral, Black News, African American News , Latino News, Hispanic News,  Minority News, Civil Rights, Discrimination, Racism, Diversity, Racial Equality, Bias, EqualityNEW YORK - Tens of thousands of participants and spectators today took part in or witnessed the 53rd annual Pride March in Manhattan.

The march, with its theme of "Unapologetically Us," is an annual tradition going back to 1970, commemorating the first anniversary of the famous Stonewall Uprising in Greenwich Village.

Along the streets of Fifth and Seventh Avenues, the march celebrates members of the LGBTQ+ communities.

March director Bansri Manek pointed out that this event is a celebration march, not a parade because the fight for human rights is continuing. On the heels of the US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, march organizers got the Planned Parenthood organization to kick off this event.

Alexis Johnson, Planned Parenthood president, said "the attack on abortion is connected to the entire attack on bodily autonomy and equal rights.

You can't have reproductive rights without LGBT rights. We are on the same team and we are fighting the same enemy."
