NYC Pride—the official host of WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50—has announced its five grand marshals slated to lead both the 50th NYC Pride March on Sunday, June 30, and this year's commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, a press release noted.

The cast of the FX show Pose, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Gay Liberation Front, The Trevor Project and Monica Helms will head this year's celebration.

—Pose ( which features the largest trans cast in TV history ) is a dance musical, set in the 1980s, that explores the juxtaposition of life and society in New York: the ball-culture world, the rise of the Trump era. and the downtown social and literary scene.

—Opoku-Gyimah ( also known as Lady Phyll ) is the core of the award-winning celebration and protest that is UK Black Pride.

—Gay Liberation Front was the very first LGBTQ activist organization formed after the Stonewall Rebellion.

—The Trevor Project is the world's largest suicide-prevention and crisis intervention organization for young LGBTQ people.

—Helms is a transgender activist, author and veteran of the United States Navy, having served on two submarines. She is also the creator of the Transgender Pride Flag, in 1999, and subsequently donated the original flag to the Smithsonian Institution in 2014.

WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50 will be composed of more than 25 different events for LGBTQIA+ people during June. Visit WorldPride.org .
