AMNY: St. Pat’s for All celebrates Irish heritage and LGBTQ+ pride

The luck of the Irish was on the side of St. Pat’s for All revelers as the rain stopped just in time for the parade to kick off around 1 p.m. in Sunnyside, Queens, on March 6, 2022.

Last year, the parade, which has been a beacon of inclusiveness and a celebration of Queens’ diversity since its inception more than 20 years ago, was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, with many COVID restrictions lifted, the second-largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City showed that the city, along with its energy, is bouncing back.

If one needed proof, all they had to do was look at the many beaming “naked” smiles, which masks had hidden for two long years.

Queens native and City Councilmember Tiffany Cabán was excited to see the “beautiful celebration of the intersection of so many different identities.”
