This year’s NYC Pride March was canceled due to the pandemic, but ABC’s Channel 7 partnered with NYC Pride for a new kind of celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of the first pride parade.
NYC Pride saluted front-line workers alongside several leaders in the community being honored as Grand Marshals: Dan Levy, The Ali Forney Center, Yanzi Peng, and Victoria Cruz.
Drag Race‘s Carson Kressley was there as special guest-host, along with Sam Champion and Kemberly Richardson.
“NYC Pride is a special place for so many. I couldn’t imagine a year without celebrating with the fabulous LBGTQ people in New York
When I was asked to join this special broadcast event with my friends at WABC it was a no brainer. Pride is something we carry with us all year long, and though we can’t be together in the way we are accustomed I’m grateful to be a part of it in this way.”
WOWlebrity photographer Ruben Natal-San Miguel was at the Stonewall Inn to catch some of the colorful, but low-key action.
