The Episcopal Church Welcomes You

Happy Pride Month!

NYC Pride March, Sunday June 26

UPDATE – 24 June  – Assembly Information

This is the largest Pride March ever. Over 450 different groups. NYC Pride have done their best to plan our meet up time to avoid too much waiting. They have added groups since Orlando, hence the delay in getting this out to you.

Meeting Location: East 38th Street, between 5th and Madison Avenues
Meeting Time: 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 26
Section 10, Group 11 in that section.   (There are 14 Sections total.)
Please enter from Madison.   If you have to get across town, do it at 42nd or above.

If you NEED to ride the float, it will be on WEST 36th between 5th and 6th.  Enter from 6th.
This is only for those who NEED to ride.  Others may board en-route as space permits.

A few notes:

  • Security will be tight.  If you don’t need a back-pack, don’t bring one.  There will be searches.
  • You cannot enter the March en-route.  (You may always leave, but won’t be allowed back.)
  • Wear comfortable shoes and sun-screen.
  • Stay hydrated, but remember, the porta-sans are few and far between.
  • Your Group Leaders in red T-shirts will have passes to allow you to leave the March and get back in.
  • Most of all.  Have fun.

Evensong at St. Luke’s is at 7:00 p.m. this year.  Hope we make it.

Questions: Send email to until midnight on Saturday.
