Millions of spectators gather every year for New York City's Pride March.

Heritage of Pride, Inc. (or simply HOP; commonly known as NYC Pride) is a non-profit organization that plans and produces New York City's official LGBT Pride events each year.

HOP produces five core events collectively known as NYC LGBT Pride, which include: The March, The Rally, PrideFest, Teaze (formerly Rapture on the River), and Dance on the Pier. In 2011, HOP began introducing additional events beyond its central offerings, starting with the VIP Rooftop Party. The 2012 Pride season saw the introduction of the Pride Luminaries Brunch as well as the Family Movie Night. The 2013 Pride season included HOP's first pool party, Pride {Poolside}.

The LGBT Pride March is an annual march, more commonly referred to as the Parade, in New York City, traversing southward down Fifth Avenue and ending at Greenwich Village. The march passes by the site of the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, location of the Stonewall riots which launched the modern gay rights movement.
