Brighton Beach Pride 2022

The Brighton Beach Pride March took place on Sunday, May 15, 2022, on the Riegelmann Boardwalk in Brooklyn, New York City. The event was organized by Rusa LGBTQ+ and was the sixth annual Brighton Beach Pride March. The event was attended by members of the LGBTQ community within the Russian-speaking diaspora in New York City. The event called for an end to the war and for a free Ukraine.

Demonstrators chanted “hey hey ho ho homophobia has got to go,” along with Russian language chants that translate to “Putin! Asshole!” and “Glory to Ukraine,” as couples hugged, held hands, and danced to live music on the Coney Island boardwalk. Representatives from Rusa LGBTQ+ handed out flyers with information about how to obtain Russian-language health care services and pro-bono immigration lawyers to help with asylum cases through their organization.
