Come out and commemorate the 47th anniversary of the first Pride March with the largest Pride March in the country. With over 2 million attendees this event is our largest for the LGBT community. The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect. The March is a celebration of our lives and our community.
