There are plenty of ways to show your LGBTQ pride this weekend — even if you’re tied down to your phone or TV. Live coverage of the 2019 Pride March, marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, aired Sunday on ABC.

The network went live from the parade from noon to 4 p.m. and feeds were available to stream on iPhone, Android or tablet devices via the ABC News app and ABCnews.go.com/live

You can still watch the parade after the fact online and on ABC's Youtube channel.

Nearly 5 million revelers and 115,000 marchers were expected to pack Manhattan for the historic march, which started on 26th Street near Madison Square Park, pased through Greenwich Village and ended on 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue.

But, no judgment if you decided to watch from your couch.

A preshow pride special aired on ABC News Live before the marchers began their trek. Promising “unprecedented access” and “incredible stories that celebrate love, life, history and community,” the network secured seven notable locals who’ve made an impact on the LGBTQ community.

Billy Porter, star of the GLAAD Media Award-winning FX series “Pose,” and the series’ Bronx-born co-creator Steven Canals made appearances with Michael James Scott, Broadway’s original “Aladdin,” drag star Shequida Hall and Wilson Cruz, who starred in “My So-Called Life” and “Star Trek: Discovery.”

Marty Easton — a 24-year-old Brigham Young University graduate who came out during his valedictorian speech — and WABC-TV weather anchor Sam Champion also shared their stories.

The “World Pride” special and the march were also available for streaming on Hulu, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Roku devices.
