Share:

NEW YORK (WABC) -- NYC Pride has announced the official theme for 2021 is: "The Fight Continues."

"The Fight Continues" reflects the multitude of battles that have been fought both throughout the country and the city.

There are many ongoing fights: the COVID pandemic, police brutality, an alarming murder rate for trans POC, economic hardship, climate disasters, violent efforts to disenfranchise voters, and the rights of the LGBTQIA community being questioned at the level of the Supreme Court.

"Within this acknowledgement of what we're fighting for and the challenges we face, we also must find the strength - together - to continue the fight," said André Thomas, NYC Pride Co-Chair. "We're fighting for ourselves, fighting for the BIPOC and trans members of our community, and fighting for future generations. By making this the 2021 theme for NYC Pride, we acknowledge all that we've accomplished and look towards what still needs to be done. NYC Pride events offer an opportunity to gather in community and highlight the diversity, resilience, and power of the LGBTQIA+ community, giving us the energy and spirit we need to continue the fight."
