The first NYC Pride March was held in 1970 to commemorate the Stonewall riots. The uprising is considered by many to be one of the most significant events in the history of LGBT rights.
The march originated as a civil-rights demonstration, but has since evolved to include recognition of the fights against AIDS and to memorialize those who died from the illness.
This year, NYC Pride is joining forces with Mashable to make the 2014 NYC Pride March accessible to a global audience through its #Pridecast broadcast. It will live stream the march beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 29, from various locations along the route via YouTube and Google+.
As we celebrate Pride this weekend, Mashable wants to know what Pride Month means to you. Share your photos and words with us using the hashtag #PrideCast, and we'll curate your responses, below, throughout the NYC Pride March.
