Want to watch the 2018 New York City Pride March? There’s an app for that.

The 49th annual NYC Pride March steps off at 7th Avenue and 16th Street this Sunday, June 24th. The March begins at noon and once again WABC-TV is the official television partner of the event. The best news for many is that you don’t have to be in the WABC-TV coverage area to tune in and watch. They have an app that works flawlessly. Just download and watch—live from New York.

I have a 50-year, personal connection to the NY Pride March so, for me, watching live when I can’t be in the city is pretty special. I’ve written about my memory of 1970, the first March, and equality on this blog in a post that I call, Not the best question to ask a gay guy: “So what does your wife do?”

WABC 7 New York has a webpage chock full of Pride info, videos, and special tips for those who will be watching along the parade route: abc7ny.com/pride. In addition, if you don’t want to download their app, you will be able to watch live via their website.

Here are some additional resources:

Enjoy the NYC March this Sunday, while remembering that supporting equality for all is a daily responsibility. Be kind to one another. Respect one another. Diversity makes all of our lives richer.


PS. Mike Wallace’s 1967 report on CBS—and others like it—provide context around the level of intolerance of the time.

When that intolerance lead to violence on a hot, steamy night in 1969, many gay men became one in spirit. Emboldened, we marched. And, we’re still marching.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
