NYC Pride is accepting Grand Marshal nominations for the 2023 Pride March through December 10, 2022. Grand Marshals represent hope, strength, perseverance, and inspiration for the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to being honored in the lead section of the march, they are NYC Pride ambassadors throughout our events. They will be invited to attend as many pride events as they can, and they will participate in media interviews and present speeches in a number of pride events throughout the city.
There are FIVE Categories of Grand Marshals for 2023 and the category name and descriptions can be found on the actual nomination form. The NYC Pride March Committee will vote on nominees in order to select the Top 3 in each category, and the slate of top picks will be taken to NYC Pride’s General Membership for approval.
