This year New York City is expecting in the neighborhood of four million rainbow and glitter-clad World Pride attendees to flood the streets of Manhattan. New York City Pride is always one of the largest in the world but with this being 2019, World Pride expect the turn out to be on a whole other level. The city will be absolutely overflowing with the kind of love and acceptance that carries us through the rest of the year.
Meg and I spent an amazing few days in the city last month and putting together the Ultimate Queer Weekend in NYC. This three-day itinerary is complete with where to stay, what to see and definitely where to grab a couple of drinks. The one thing it doesn’t include is how to get to NYC. Of course, traffic in the city is always hectic even on a good day, so the day of the Pride Parade it’s going to be a nightmare. Luckily, megabus.com is making it incredibly simple to get to World Pride.
This year megabus.com is showing its support for the LGBTQ community by offering $5 tickets that will take you from Philadelphia to the 2019 New York City World Pride Parade on a rainbow wrapped bus. You can grab your tickets here to secure your spot on the bus that leaves Philly at 7:10 am and gets to NYC at 9:10 am, plenty of time to secure a good spot for the 11 o’clock parade. Super important, after you purchase your $5 on the PrideBus to NYC send us a confirmation of your trip so we can enter you entered into a drawing for two, $50 megabus.com vouchers. Free travel is always the best kind, so don’t forget!
Megabus.com is not only offering the Pride Bus tickets but they have also partnered with SAGE and will be donating $10,000 this year. SAGE is an organization focused on providing services to LGBTQ elders. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall, while we have so much to celebrate this Pride season it is also a great time to reflect on the people in the community that has done so much to get us here. The partnership with SAGE is part of a larger commitment by megabus.com to provide a safe and inclusive travel experience for all riders.
And because one giveaway simply isn’t enough there is a second contest. This one is called Show Your Sign and the winner receives $250 and a free trip voucher valid for one year! Take and submit photos showing off the colorful, creative or witty sign you’ll be taking with you any Pride for your chance to win! We can’t wait to see them all so definitely tag @megcale and @lindscale on Instagram so we can share them too!
