Straight people are known for calling in sick the day after the Super Bowl, so damn it, we can do it, too. (Wait—you mean you already called in sick the day after the Oscars!?) Call your boss and tell him you’re taking Monday off.

This year, the annual Pride celebration in NYC gets supersized with WorldPride and Stonewall 50. People from around the world will be here to mark the occasion, all of them ready to express their LGBTQ+ pride with protest and parties, panels and performances, and, of course, the March itself, which this year will be especially epic. 

New York City Tartan Week centers on the Tartan Day Parade (April 6), during which bagpipers, dancers and thousands of marchers celebrate all things Scottish.
