Technically, it’s a civil rights demonstration, but really, it feels more like a street party that starts in midtown and ends in the Village. For more than 40 years, the annual Gay Pride Parade has been marching in support of issues affecting the LGBT community, from AIDS to marriage equality, and this year’s Grand Marshals include original party girl Cyndi Lauper and Chris Salgardo, among others. Post-parade, keep the party going with Dance on the Pier featuring DJs Eddie Baez, The Perry Twins, and Boris, as well as performances by Lauper and Eva Simons. The point is we all just want to have fun—and everyone should have the right to!
