NYC Pride announces its Grand Marshals slated to lead the NYC Pride March on Sunday, June 26, 2022.
Ts Madison, Punkie Johnson, Schuyler Bailar, Dominique Morgan, and Chase Strangio will head this year’s celebration, with Angelica Ross returning for a second year as co-host and featured performer of the broadcast special on ABC-7.
“At a time when LGBTQIA+ people are under increased attack, the NYC Pride March is a beacon of hope and community,” said Bansri Manek, NYC Pride March Director. “Our grand marshals for this year truly embody the spirit of the theme for NYC Pride 2022, ‘Unapologetically Us.’ They have embraced their identities and used their platforms to help members of our community truly love and live their truth without fear or shame.”
“They also exemplify the key themes of our Grand Marshal categories, including Trans Rights Champion, Social Justice Warrior, Behind-the-Scenes, Celebrated Luminary and Youth Activism.”
The NYC Pride March broadcast special, co-hosted by Angelica Ross along with WABC’s Ken Rosato, Lauren Glassberg and Sam Champion, will return for its sixth consecutive year.
Featuring live performances and on-air interviews, the broadcast will air on ABC-7 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm ET on Sunday, June 26 as well on ABC7NY.com, ABC News Live, and ABC7 New York’s Connected TV Apps on streaming platforms Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku.
