The next World Pride will be held in New York in 2019 to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

The two month long celebration has never before been held in the US, NYC Pride announced their bid successful bid, approved by the membership of InterPride at a meeting in Las Vegas this week.

David Schneider, NYC Pride’s Stonewall 50 Director says “The Stonewall Uprising is considered the most significant event that ignited the modern LGBT rights movement, so it makes perfect sense to bring WorldPride to the birthplace of Pride in 2019.

“We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organisers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion.”

World Pride was last held in Toronto in 2014.
