What a great honor for Mr. Jonathan Groff!
The New York City annual Pride March is one of the biggest pride parades in the nation and the Frozen star was deemed one of the grand marshals alongside actress and activist Laverne Cox and Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Rea Carey.
David Studinski, the March Director revealed why they chose these three outstanding individuals for 2014.
He said in a statement:
"Our 2014 marshals are leaders in brilliant forms of activism through which LGBT people and their allies engage. Individually, they represent the diversity within the LGBT community and the various struggles our community members have and continue to face. Collectively, their stories reinforce that no voice is too small nor weak to make change in our world — and it starts with being yourself."
JGroff is such an involved member in his community and this title is truly well deserved!
This year's Pride March starts at noon on June 29th and its theme is "We Have Won When We're One."
