Parade & Festival:  Sunday, June 5, 2016

Queens Pride, the organizer of the 2016 Pride Parade and Festival held in Jackson Heights, Queens, NY, welcomes you to celebrate 24 years of visibility, the fight for social justice and the celebration of community.

This year's parade and festival was one of the best attended. A record number of people came out to support LGBTQ pride and participate marching, partaking in the street festival and enjoying the stage entertainment. A special thanks to all our volunteers, without which, this would not be possible!
