Whew, what a day!

On Sunday, June 24, lower Manhattan was transformed into a sea of rainbows as millions of people lined up for the 2018 NYC Pride March.

Held in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month, this year’s Pride March was among the largest LGBTQ-themed parades in the world, as hundreds of floats and marching contingents made their way down Fifth Avenue before heading back northwest to end at 16th Street and Seventh Avenue.

For the third year in a row, NYC Department of Education had an official presence at the march, as hundreds of students and DOE staff members joined together to celebrate #NYCSchoolsPride. Even Chancellor Richard Carranza got in on the celebration, as he and his wife, Monique, marched in solidarity with the thousands of LGBTQ students and staff members who attend or work in City schools.

We thank everyone who joined us on June 24!
