First Ever Disability Pride Parade in NYC

This past Sunday was a momentous one for the New York After Dark family. As Mayor Bill de Blasio says in the video: “Sometimes you get to say you were at a first. You were at an historical moment. We are sharing an historical moment together – New York City’s first ever Disability Pride Parade.”

The event kicked off with remarks from Senator Tom Harkin – the author of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary.

In the video you can see highlights from the parade, including the smiling faces of the over 3,000 participants.

Congrats to the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities and Disability Pride Day NYC for organizing an amazing event! We look forward to next years parade.
