iHeartRadio’s PRIDE Radio is an official sponsor of the NYC WorldPride March this summer. On Sunday, June 30th, iHeartRadio and others will take to the streets to celebrate Pride in NYC! iHeartRadio and PRIDE Radio will have their own float this year too, and YouTube sensation Alex Aiono is joining iHeart on the float for this inaugural moment.
The parade kicks off at 12:05 p.m. and top DJs such as iHeartMedia’s A-Ron will join iHeartRadio’s official float. iHeartMedia New York’s Z100 and 103.5 KTU will also participate in the parade with their very own floats.
The first NYC Pride March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, the march’s purpose has broadened to remember the LGBTQ+ community’s fight against AIDS and those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
This year, the NYC WorldPride March will be joined by cast members of FX’s POSE, the co-founder of UK Black Pride Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, transgender activist and Navy veteran Monica Helms, intersex activist Betsy Driver and many others!
If you are in the NYC area on this Sunday, come and march to celebrate this year’s Pride Month! There will be a wide array of inspiring activists and members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as about many iHeartRadio employees and friends to walk with! Have fun and happy Pride!
