Queens Pride Parade and Festival

This year's Grand Marshals: ACQC (AIDS Center of Queens County), Jessica Stern of OutRight Action International, and the Honorable Julissa Ferreras.

Parade: Jackson Heights - 37th Avenue from 89th Street to 75th Street. Kick-off at 12 noon. Reviewing stand at 37th Avenue between 79th and 80th Streets.

Festival: 75th Street and 37th Road. Queens Pride and Club Evolution stages provide entertainment throughout the afternoon, beginning at 1:30pm and ending at 6pm. Vendors, food and informative business, community and social group booths are located throughout the festival site.

This year's festival stage will be loaded with great talent reflecting the diversity of our community. Singers, comedians, drag acts, dance groups and much more. The show starts at 1:30 pm and ends with our headline performer - Crystal Waters. The breadth of her work continues to engage new fans and please her enormous base. She is best known for her string of domestic and international number one dance hits in the 1990’s, including her 1991 signature smash, “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)”, which garnered her three American Music Award nominations and made her an international sensation. “Gypsy Woman” became a global, number one smash because of its socially-conscious lyrics and its positively infectious hook. She again found mainstream success with “100% Pure Love”, which became one of the longest charting songs on the Billboard Hot 100, staying on the charts for a whopping 45 weeks.
