Mapping the Shifting Course of NYC's Gay Pride Parade

In a new interactive map, the Rudin Center for Transportation at NYU Wagner tracks the changing route of the Gay Pride Parade through its nearly half-century history in New York City. The evolution of the parade's course, and of the media's words to describe the major cultural event, are also shown.

The map arrives just in time for the 2015 Pride Weekend events across the city and nation. What is more, it also coincides with the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic ruling June 26 enshrining the right of same-sex marriage.

The Rudin Center map was picked up by the New York Observer’s website.
