Sirs Ian and Derek, NYC Pride Grand Marshals

Written by | Entertainment

Sirs Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi viciously discuss how they’ll be grand marshals of NYC Pride.

What’s a girl to wear? Should Sir Ian bring a parasol? Will Sir Derek finally visit the Stonewall Inn? (Spoiler: They don’t resolve these questions, but you should watch them try to anyway; there’s a montage of trying on silly hats, for God’s sake.)

Please note, gentlemen, Sir Ian doesn’t seem to be attached, and “…is looking forward to Pride.”

The two lovably bitchy stars of PBS’s Vicious will be joined by artist J. Christopher Neal and Ugandan activist Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera to round out the event’s grand marshals.
