New York to get 'largest LGBTQ pride flag' at Roosevelt Island

BY REBECCA KLAR - 06/12/19 09:24 AM EDT

A New York state park will unveil the city's largest LGBTQ pride flag on Saturday.

The steps of the Four Freedoms State Park on Roosevelt Island will transform into a 12-foot-by-100-foot pride flag, from Friday June 14 to Sunday June 30, the park announced.

The park said the event is in honor of progress that's been made over the past 50 years on human rights, and is intended to shine light on the fight for universal human rights.

It is also intended to call attention to President Franklin Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech from January 1941. In that address, Roosevelt described as fundamental four freedoms that all people should share: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear.
