The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil

include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we
have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2014, we
were joined by over 325 unique marching contingents, representing a vast
array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors,
small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 55
floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year's March was one of
the largest and most exciting in history. The Grand Marshalls are British actors Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi.
