Times Ledger: Queens Pride season kicks off with annual celebration
The 26th Annual Queens Pride Parade will step off June 3 at noon along 37th Avenue and be followed with a multicultural festival located at 37th Avenue and 75th Street in what has become the second largest Pride event in the city, drawing as many as 40,000 participants each year. Eli Betts, 20, has been selected as a grand marshal of this year’s Queens Pride Parade in recognition of his leadership in Generation Q, a Forest Hills-based LGBTQ youth program operated by the Queens Community House. Betts will don the grand marshal sash alongside Borough President Melinda Katz and the non-profit Hetrick-Martin Institute, a Manhattan-based center for LGBTQ youth advocacy.
