New York City has been selected to host WorldPride 2019, which is to be held in conjunction with Stonewall 50, the official commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. The theme of Stonewall 50/WorldPride 2019 is “Millions of Moments of Pride,” and it will feature an expanded two-month series of events and programs alongside NYC Pride’s historic March, Rally, PrideFest, and legendary dances for men and women.
“The Stonewall Uprising is considered the most significant event that ignited the modern LGBT rights movement, so it makes perfect sense to bring WorldPride to the birthplace of Pride in 2019,” David Schneider, NYC Pride’s Stonewall 50 Director, said in a statement. “We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organizers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion.”
Madrid hosted the WorldPride, in 2017, and previous host cities have included Rome, Jerusalem, London, and Toronto.
