Biggest parade led by NYC Pride to conduct LGBTQ online protest for the first time

Unicorn, rainbow flags, and the HRC equal sign logo are just some of the most recognized LGBTQ symbols. Each year in the month of June, the gay community and its supporters gather to promote equality and eradicate social discrimination based on sexual orientation.

One of the well-known organizations that officiates LGBTQIA+ Pride events across the nation is the NYC Pride. They are the first ones to conduct gay pride on June 28, 1970, and march through 15 streets of the state. From then on, other major cities in the United States have continued fighting for lesbian and gay rights. The advocacy also reached Asian countries where same-sex activities remain illegal.
