NYC Celebrates Its LGBT Heritage
Over the past few decades, advocates of LGBT rights have won many impressive victories here and across the world on the path toward a more accepting and celebratory world. As we prepare for the upcoming LGBT Pride festival in New York City, we’re especially humbled by the memory of those activities who decided to fight for the respect they deserved back in 1969 at New York’s Stonewall Inn, setting off the global movement that thrives today. On Sunday, June 24, NYC will host its biggest Pride Parade ever (to give you an idea of the scope, last year’s parade included some 450 individual marching contingents and more than 110 floats). Marchers set off at noon from 16th St. and 7th Ave., heading down 7th Ave. before turning east on Christopher St. and onto W. 8th St., then marching north on 5th Ave. up to 29th St. If you’re planning to attend, we hope you’ll consider staying at Hotel Hugo. Our SoHo location is the perfect home away from home, providing you a quiet, sophisticated spot to relax and recharge between your excursions out to the parade and the many popular LGBT bars and clubs across the city.
