THE QUEENS PRIDE IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT PARADE PARTICIPANTS WILL COMPETE FOR THE QUEENIE AWARDS IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES!

  • The Drag Race– Need we say more... 
  • The Rainbow Award– Awarded to the group with the best use of color.  Work those outfits, banners and vehicles, boys and girls!
  • The Screaming Queens Award– Awarded to the group with the best sound— Be it chanting, singing, a band, live or pre-recorded, make noise!
  • The Screaming Theme Award– Awarded to the group that best illustrates our 2017 theme–“TBA”
  • The Toast of Queens Award– Awarded to the Bar, Club, or business with the best representation!
  • The Simply the Best Award– REALLY! Must this be explained?

The rules are simple: 

Your group must be registered and have checked-in for the parade.

At the reviewing stand in front of the U.S. Post office, located at 37th avenue between 79th and 78th streets, you will stop to face the judges and display your group’s banner or sign.  Any group that is performing should limit their presentation to no more than two minutes.

Since our parade is held within a residential neighborhood, we expect all participants to obey all laws pertaining to public decency and nudity.  Hey, if you wouldn’t do it in front of your mother, you shouldn’t do it at the Parade! Please, keep it covered!  Any group not adhering to this guideline will be disqualified!

For further information regarding the Queenie Awards or to register for the March, call / text Queens Pride 347-494-1899 or email: parade@queenspride.org

See you on Sunday, June 4, 2017 for the 25th Queens Pride Parade And Festival!
