Thousands march in New York for WorldPride

Sunday - 30/06/2019 21:39
Hundreds of thousands of revellers have thronged the streets of New York for WorldPride, one of the largest LGBT celebrations in the world.

Thousands of people are taking to the New York City streets for the largest LGBTQ celebration in the world. It's the first time WorldPride is being held in the US and organizers expect about 115,000 people to attend.

The march coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, considered the catalyst for the modern gay rights movement.
