  • People march down 5th Avenue during the 2019 World Pride NYC and Stonewall 50th LGBTQ Pride Parade in New York

The parade took place amid commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

Organizers said about 150,000 people attended the parade on Sunday, which includes a march down Fifth Avenue past the Stonewall Inn on the 50th anniversary of the 1969 riots in which members of the LGBT community stood up to a police raid on the gay bar.

The alternative Queer Liberation March in downtown Manhattan was created to be a return to "a people's political march" without corporate sponsorship and police barricades, organizers said.

Millions of people turned out for the WorldPride parade in NY on June 30, 2019.

Ms. Christianson said she is concerned that the movement could suffer setbacks during the Trump administration, which has moved to revoke newly won health-care protections for transgender people, restrict their presence in the military and withdraw federal guidance that trans students should be able to use bathrooms of their choice.

"We've been ready for this for almost 30 years", another said, sharing footage of himself as a kid dancing to the song "Vogue".

"What's important to remember is that this is a protest against the monetization of the Pride parade, against the police brutality of our community, against the poor treatment of sections of our community, of black and brown folk, of immigrants", said Jake Seller, a 24-year-old IN native who now lives IN Brooklyn and worked as one of the march's volunteers.

The police presence at the massive march was heavy, with several officers posted at every corner.

Thousands of people gathered for the show - held on "Pride Island" at Pier 97 in Manhattan, where they got into the groove in celebration of the LGBTQ community. Metal barricades were erected along the entire parade route.

They did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Protest Pride.
