Travel Tips

Plan a family trip to New York City June 14–24, for the NYC Pride celebration. This year’s theme, Defiantly Different, celebrates individuality, self-confidence and power in the face of adversity. What better way to inspire the kids than by promoting positivity, power and artistic expression? Support LGBTQ family, friends and strangers at NYC Pride — and give back to LGBTQ-run establishments and local communities.

Make it an Escape

NYC Pride’s 2018 theme may celebrate the brave pioneers and advocates who laid the groundwork for LGBTQ equality and continued progress against all odds, but that doesn’t mean your family shouldn’t enjoy the finer qualities of the city.

 

Prepare for the NYC Pride parade with a good nights’ sleep at Hotel Wales. The Tag-approved hotel offers luxury accommodations and upscale dining for the whole family — all in an ideal proximity to pride events while being just off the beaten path from the more rowdy crowds.

 

For families looking for lodging in the heart of the action, check out Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel by Marriott. Plan your stay and read through the hotel’s list of LGBTQ community events and restaurants ideal for your family. Fuel up at the hotel restaurant with a view of the events below or head out in the crowds for PrideFest, Pride Island and the Human Rights Conference.

 

Be sure to save room for this year’s culinary event, Savor Pride.

Give Back

Just by attending, your family is showing support, but go the extra step and volunteer at the festival this year. NYC Pride is all about supporting the community and giving back, so encourage the kids to get involved and check out the rules and regulations for supporting the cause and each other.

 

All volunteers can be as involved as they want and receive work assignments based on experience, preference and education. Get involved and check out the volunteer form here for more information.

 

The experience will be invaluable for students, incredibly bonding for the whole family and an unforgettable summer event.
