World Pride June 2019

31 May 2019

Throughout June 2019 New York will host World Pride.

2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising – the event that kick started the gay liberation movement. NYC Pride 2019 will be branded as both World Pride 2019 and Stonewall50.

It’s estimated that 3 million people will be participating. The festivities will culminate in the Pride March on Sunday 30th June.

Travellers intending participating in this event should seek pre-travel advice from a travel health practitioner regarding potential health risks and appropriate vaccination schedules.

Vaccination, against  MMR, Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B may be advised. Vaccination schedules can take a number of weeks to complete, so where possible  seek advice a minimum of 6-8 weeks prior to your departure date, though it is never too late to get advice.
