New York City - Over 5 Million people are expected to visit New York City during the historic June 2019 World Pride/Stonewall 50 celebrations. World Pride events have taken place around the globe every two years since 2000, this will be the second World Pride on Turtle Island - the land we now call North America. With such a monumental and visible happening in history of the Two Spirit Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer (TSLGBTQ) movement, it is imperative that the First Peoples of this land are presented with dignity and pride by NYC's Heritage of Pride (HOP) organization - the local organizers of World Pride. The Two Spirit Indigenous People's Association of NYC (TSIPA) is seeking an active partnership with HOP to ensure the respectful representation of Two Spirit Indigenous People.

The term "Two Spirit" is a pan-Indigenous Indian term agreed upon in between 1989 and 1990 at an Indigenous LGBTQ gathering in Manitoba, Canada. Minneapolis, MN. The term is intended to unite Indigenous cisgender, transgender, gender fluid, gender queer, and gender non-conforming people under one spirit name term. The concept of being Two-Spirit can be translated from many Native cultures and languages. Two Spirit People in the histories of many Native peoples were revered and uplifted by their respected tribes before the devastating effects of colonization. Two Spirit people often had functional and sacred traditional roles among their Nations. Two Spirit people in fact pre-date the modern LGBTQ movement. On August 13, 2018 members of TSIPA attended the World Pride 2019 town hall meeting held at New York's LGBT Center where they spoke about proper representation of the community during the upcoming World Pride 2019 march and its subsequent events. TSIPA NYC is a volunteer task force organizing to support visiting Indigenous relatives with community and safer spaces during this year's World Pride/Stonewall 50. In addition TSIPA is requesting a place in the 2019 March that is respectful of the First People of this land.
