“This year’s theme speaks to the striking nature of the human race to stand in commonality and be accounted for in moments of thrilling victory and tumultuous times,” said Maryanne Roberto Fine, NYC Pride Co-Chair.
NYC Pride is thrilled to announce 2017’s official theme, “We Are Proud.” This year's theme pays honor to our diverse community of LGBT people and the progress made for LGBT rights. “We Are Proud” similarly recognizes the continued battle for freedom and liberty amidst the existing political climate in the United States and abroad.
“We are the ever-evolving LGBTQ community and the tireless work of women and people of color. We are the valiant immigrants and refugees who found places to call home in America and around the globe. We are an undaunted community with disabilities and we are the rising youth and wise elders of yesteryear. We are etched into the very fabric of American history. And we are proud of it,” said Roberto Fine.
The 2017 NYC Pride week will take place from June 16 to June 25. This year’s roster will include the March, Rally, PrideFest, OutCinema, Teaze and a new multi-day cultural experience on Pier 26.
