This year’s NYC Pride March promises to be one of, if not the, biggest events of the year: For the first time, New York is playing host to WorldPride, the annual celebration of LGBTQ communities around the world.

More than 550 organizations participated in last year’s Pride March, and it’s likely to be even bigger this year: According to the NYPD, an additional three to four million people are expected to head to the various Pride festivities happening over the weekend (and spilling over into next week, when the Fourth of July happens).

That also means the Pride March is likely to be even more packed with revelers this year—so what do you do if you’re not up for being around huge crowds? There are plenty of ways to watch the march from the comfort of your own apartment: ABC7 will be broadcasting the march live beginning at noon and going until 4 p.m.

Watching the march on TV may give you a better view of the floats and grand marshals, including the cast of FX’s Pose and the Gay Liberation Front, which formed in the aftermath of the Stonewall uprising. ABC will also livestream the event on its website, app, YouTube, and social media feeds.
