2018 New York City Pride March

Pride Weekend 2018: Best Photos From NYC and SF

Scenes from the massive marches celebrating and supporting the LGBTQ community.

Near the end of every June, two massive parades in New York and San Francisco mark the peak of Pride Month in the United States — a celebration of the LGBTQ community and its allies. As usual, this year thousands of revelers came out to party (and, in some cases, protest), including a few familiar faces. Pictured: Cynthia Nixon, former "Sex and the City" star and current New York gubernatorial candidate, with "Orange Is the New Black" actress Lea DeLaria.
