The Pride March will be switching things around this year. The festive annual event celebrates L.G.B.T. pride and the birth of the gay rights movement at the Stonewall Rebellion in the Village in 1969.
Traditionally, the procession has started on Fifth Ave. in Midtown and ended in the Village. This June, however, the cavalcade will go in the opposite direction, starting just north of the Village and finishing on Fifth.
Specifically, the march will kick off on Sun., June 24, at noon at W. 16th St. and Seventh Ave. and head down Seventh Ave. and Seventh Ave. South to Christopher St., then turn east onto Christopher to pass in front of the Stonewall Inn, then continue eastward across Eighth St. and then up Fifth Ave. to finish at 29th St.
