Details

Expression of self is an art form for the LGBTQIA+ community. So, when thinking about the monumental task of hosting the first WorldPride in the United States, in conjunction with 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, we knew we had to create something that would express, our defiance, our fears, our gratitude and our pride. There is no better way to do this than thru art. Art comes in many forms, but as New Yorkers we revere street art. Murals decorate our streets while also telling our stories. The artists behind these creative, and sometimes massive, works of art breathe even more life into an already vibrant city.

It is an honor and a privilege to welcome the world to New York for this historic event, so we are painting the town. NYC Pride in collaboration with production and curation partner, LISA Project NYC, founding partner, HSBC, and major supporting partner, Macy’s present the WorldPride Mural Project initiative. Both local and international artists, 50 in total, were selected to create murals within the five boroughs of New York that reflect and honor the beauty, struggle, and strides of the LGBTQIA+ community.

As millions descend on New York they will inevitably explore all that the city has to offer. Whether the March carries them thru neighborhoods that are intricately tied to the LGBTQIA+ community, or they venture out to other boroughs the WorldPride Mural Project will serve as a beacon of pride. Art has long cradled the members of of our community through times of struggle and lifted many up, providing a platform to elevate our voices in a creative and unique way. The Lisa Project New York is curating an experience that will lift us as high as the skyscrapers.

From Staten Island to the Bronx take an artistic journey thru the history of pride.
