Description

Celebrate Purple Pride in NYC at the 2018 New York City Pride March

On June 24th, Williams and Amherst will join forces to participate in the annual NYC Pride March. We will be joining hundreds of other schools, organizations and groups to celebrate the LGBTQ community. We warmly welcome all Williams alumni, students, faculty, staff and families to march with us under our school banners (children and allies are welcome!). Show your Purple Pride and sign up to march with us.

We will convene at The Meatball Shop - Chelsea location, 200 9th Ave, New York - at 3:00 p.m. for food, drink, swag distribution, and to check in. We will then walk together to our step off point. Our group will step off at 5:00 p.m. and should be done marching around 8:00 p.m.

About the NYC Pride March

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. In 2017, we were joined by over 450+ unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 110 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

Important Information

Road Closures:
Please note that 7th Ave will close at 10:30am. Plan your travel accordingly, and allow extra time for traffic and road closures.

March Route:
The march begins at 7th Ave & 16th St and ends at 29th St & 5th Ave.

Staging & Timing:
Our staging area is on 15th St between 7th & 8th Ave. You must have a wristband to enter the staging area and the parade route. To get a wristband to march, you must meet the group at The Meatball Shop before 4:30 p.m. We will be in the staging area for up to 90 minutes before actually stepping off on the march route. The route is two miles long, and in past years it has taken groups 90 minutes to complete the march. We anticipate being off the march route at approximately 8pm.

Other tips:
Wear comfortable shoes, bring water to stay hydrated, and wear sunscreen. Please check the weather so you are dressed appropriately.
Avoid large bags - instead bring a small bag or a fanny pack. Large bags may be searched before stepping off.
Portable bathrooms will be available throughout the route.
