We are excited to announce our 3rd Annual #UnitedGreekPride in the New York City 50th Annual PRIDE March on Sunday, June 30th! Join several Fraternity and Sororities, Non-Greek Organizations, and community members as we march, dance, step, and stroll down the streets of NYC! This year, NALFO and NMGC are joining forces to organize on behalf of all interested in participating.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to be Latinx, a member of a Fraternity or Sorority, nor a NALFO/NMGC organization to attend and participate - we encourage all creeds, backgrounds, and walks of life to join us!Why is the March important?
The March represents the diverse lived experiences of our community members. The first March was held in 1970 as a result of the 1969 Stonewall Riot and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence, and neglect.
Pride has become a way to honor the bravery and achievement of those who blazed the trail. The victories that we've enjoyed came as the result of decades of fighting, and Pride now gives us a chance to celebrate those victories and honor the people who helped make it possible, and who continue to stand on the front lines. What is our participation's purpose and goal?
Community, Visibility, and Activism
Nothing is quite as powerful as that feeling of relief and support when you’ve finally “found your tribe.” Through this monumental participation at the NYC Pride Parade, we hope that this builds an inclusive and safe environment for straight and LGBQ+ identifying Fraternity and Sorority members to come together and uplift one another.
The Trump Administration has had a lasting negative effect on the mental health of our LGBTQ+ Community throughout the United States. We strive to empower the community and members through solidarity, visibility, allyship, and support.Organizations & Leads Participating in 2019:
