48th Annual NYC Gay Pride Parade to Be Televised LIVE for First Time

The birthplace of the gay civil rights movement in 1969 and home of the first Gay Pride Parade the following year will mark another first this year. New York City is having its annual celebration of LGBT Community, Culture, and Pride broadcast live.  According to TimeOut.com,

“After the 2016 Gay Pride March welcomed two million participants and 35 marching garrisons, it seems that NYC’s LGBTQ community has become too loud to ignore, and now local affiliate station WABC-TV is getting in on the action. The Tri-state area channel will air this year’s march and connected festivities live from noon–3pm on Channel 7, along with a feed streaming on abc7ny.com. The network will also cover PrideFest, the Pride Luminaries brunch, the Rally and the brand-new Pride Island music festival, which features Tegan and Sara, Years & Years and Patti Labelle.”
