Reclaim Pride March; ACT UP & JVP Protest Global Queer Rights Group’s Refusal to Denounce Gaza Genocide

2024 Reclaim Pride March

Naomi Brussel will discuss the upcoming Reclaim Pride March with Jay Walker, an organizer with the group Reclaim Pride. The Reclaim Pride Coalition is the grassroots collective that has organized the Queer Liberation March in New York City every June since 2019. They seek to honor and reclaim the spirit of the Stonewall Riots, centering and amplifying the voices and needs of marginalized LGBTQIA2S+ communities. In the tradition of early Pride Marches, they reject corporate sponsorship and police involvement. As a community, they take to the streets to challenge systemic oppression, advocate for justice, and create a world where all queer and transgender individuals are free to live authentically and without fear.
