New York Was Chosen To Host The World Pride 2019

Written by 

Stonewall 50 worldpride 2019

 

While Madrid is to host the WorlPride 2017, we now know the host city for the WolrdPride 2019. New York was chosen because 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

Which amounts to saying that the party is looking huge! The theme of Stonewall 50/WorldPride 2019 is “Millions of Moments of Pride,” will allow us to celebrate this WolrdPride but also to celebrate the Stonewall uprising, that is to say the beginning of the movement for LGBT rights and therefore the first Gay Pride Parade, which was held in New York in 1969 and enabled the launch of Gay Prides all around the world.

"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," David Schneider, NYC Pride’s Stonewall 50 Director, said in a statement. "We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organizers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion."

See you in New York in 2019!
