"Pride means power, pride means joy, and pride means to love."  

Exactly one year after the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, the very first pride parade kicked off on Christopher Street with a march up New York's Sixth Avenue and into the Sheep Meadow in Central Park. They marched to demonstrate against decades of systemic discrimination, inequality, and harassment.  

Fifty years later, New York City was preparing for the biggest pride celebration yet when COVID-19 struck. Undeterred, the global LGBTQIA+ community transformed this special anniversary into a global virtual celebration. In Why We March, voices from the past five decades of the NYC Pride March share what PRIDE means to them and reveal the power of PRIDE in personal histories, moments that shaped their lives, and how it has informed the LGBTQIA+ rights movement.  

From riding down Fifth Avenue on the Caribbean truck and volunteering with the balloon arches, to dancing at the piers and going to the Latex Ball, each memory shows that 50 years later, PRIDE is still loud and proud.

Way way too short

I mistakenly thought this was going to be an actual book about the history of Gay Rights in America and the history of Pride Month, but it’s just a podcast. I was hoping for more history, more context, more of a well-rounded explanation of Pride and it’s not even an hour long.

Barely skims the surface

At thirty minutes long Why We March Celebrating 50 Years of Pride barely skims the surface of why we march.

Love is love

This is a brief compilations of stories of what Pride means to different members of the LGTTQ+ community. As an Ally I enjoyed the stories and celebrate their triumphs. Narration is amazing as a multi cast narration. Love is love!

It was fine - just kind of boring. No story line - just clips of people saying why pride is important to them.
