Dust off your rainbow attire and get ready to twirl. Pride month 2022 will bring parades, parties, and protests commemorating the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. While the 53rd anniversary might not seem as sparkly as the 50th, you should still prepare for an exhilarating season across the US.
“What excites me most is that we’re back in person for the first time in three years,” says Dan Dimant, media director of NYC Pride. Like so many cities worldwide, New York pivoted to virtual events in June 2020 to keep people safe. But Pride wasn’t the same. “So much gets lost when you’re behind a screen and you can’t interact with like-minded people,” he says.
