Philadelphia Pride March

June 2 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Organizer: Philly Pride 365

Where: 6th and Walnut Streets

6th and Walnut Streets
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States


The Philadelphia Pride march is an ode to The Reminder Day Demonstrations that were held in front of Independence Hall on Chestnut Street from 1965 until 1969 to raise awareness of bigotry, prejudice, and discrimination toward the LGBTQ+ community and to send the message that “Gay is good.” The 1972 Pride Day March concluded at the same spot 50 years ago.

The march will kick-off with speeches from community leaders and guests and a land acknowledgment from the Lenape Tribe. Then, the march will proceed to the festival. Philly Pride 365 is adding to its legacy and some length to last year’s record breaking Pride Flag. Along the way, look for the giant 400 feet long record-breaking pride flag increased from last year’s record breaking 200 feet, to be unveiled with help from dozens of community members and volunteers. This is the largest pride in Philadelphia history and aims to set the record for the biggest pride flag in Pennsylvania. The flag was custom designed for Galaei and made in Pennsylvania.

The march is an open invitation to the LGBTQ+ community and allies, with no registration needed. While floats and vehicles will not be permitted, everyone is welcome to join before the march starts for speeches, music, and joy. Please join the Galaei Pride 365 “BE YOU” March through Philadelphia, whether with a group or organization aligned with Galaei’s mission, with friends and family, or solo.
