NYC Pride Parade 2018: The Experience
Why the NYC Pride Parade 2018 Was Special
I’ve been to gay pride events in many different cities around the world, but nothing stood out like the NYC pride parade 2018.
My best friend Taylor works for Athlete Ally, a non-profit organization with a mission to end homophobia in sports. They partnered with Deutsche Bank they shared a float for the NYC pride parade 2018. I luckily got the chance to join them, marking my first time on a pride float!
I had a chance to watch some floats go by before we got on ours, which was awesome because I saw the Broad City TV show cast, whom I love! Running on three hours of sleep, the DJ’s stellar mixes lit me up and I jumped up and down for hours!
Celebrations Like The NYC Pride Parade 2018
If you have a chance to get on some kind of float in a parade, no matter what city you are in, do it! It’s almost like you’re famous, with crowds cheering around you.
There are many chances to attend one of the top LGBT+ pride parades and other gay-oriented festivals around the world.
There is this overall sense of joy and excitement that runs through every soul around—it’s a feeling like no other. It’s a memory that is beautifully seared into my mind.
I’d love to hear some of your pride stories. Share some info about pride in your city/country in an email to wolfyy!
