Pride 2021

Whether at home or in the streets, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating and honoring pride this year.


In the wake of national attacks on trans youth, it’s critical that New York strive to become a safe place for trans, gender non-conforming, and non-binary (TGNCNB) people. But to this day, TGNCNB New Yorkers still cannot often access identity documents that accurately reflect who they are. The Gender Recognition Act would ensure that X gender markers are available on all New York identity documents and create a privacy-protective, streamlined, and non-stigmatizing process for people to change the names and gender markers on their identity documents. Tell your lawmakers to pass the Gender Recognition Act.

The NYCLU will be on the ground throughout June – including at the Queer Liberation March on June 27. We will distribute "know your rights" materials at Pride events and our protest monitors will be at marches to support your right to celebrate and march without police intimidation or violence.
