The main theme of World Pride Festival 2019 is chosen. It is “Millions of moments of Pride.”
World Pride Festival will be held in New York City in the coming 2019 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
The international two month festival of World Pride will take place for the first time in the United States, and it will coincide with the anniversary of the events that happened at the Stonewall Inn bar in 1969. This bar was located on Christopher Street, and today this inn and the street are considered as international symbols of gay pride. After this event, the mass movement in defense of all gays and lesbians rights all over the world has started.
The organization NYC Pride, that conducts the annual LGBT pride parades in New York, claimed that its application has been approved at the meeting of InterPride, which was held in Las Vegas this week.
“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 – said David Schneider, the director of the organization Stonewall 50. We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organizers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion.”
So, all the LGBT people are looking forward to this fabulous event that will unite individuals who struggle for their rights all over the world.
