The network put together the most buzzed-about float at the 2019 New York City Pride Parade on Sunday, which came on World Pride Day, featuring a slew of its most recognizable stars.
Head honcho Andy Cohen led the way, DJing for the entire day as "Real Housewives" danced, waved, took selfies and showed their support for the LGBTQ community during its month of celebration. Andy included several singles from Bravo stars on his playlist for the day, including "Money Can't By You Class" by Countess Luann and "Tardy for the Party" by Kim Zolciak. There were also iconic Bravo quotes mixed in throughout the day.
The list of names on the float wearing rainbow-hued ensembles reads like a who's who of Bravo: Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer from "RHONY;" NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Eva Marcille and Marlo Hampton from "RHOA;" Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs from "RHONJ;" Kelly Dodd from "RHOC;" LeeAnne Locken from "RHOD;" Gizelle Bryant from "RHOP;" Reza Farahan from "Shahs of Sunset;" Patricia Altschul from "Southern Charm;" Captain Sandy Yawn from "Below Deck Med" and Billie Lee from "Vanderpump Rules."

Also on the float? The Gay Shark from "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, as well as drag queens Jackie Cox, Chelsea Piers and Paige Turner, who dressed up as "RHOBH" stars Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne and Lisa Vanderpump. Curiously, the Beverly Hills franchise was the only one not represented with a cast member on Sunday.
AOL's Gibson Johns walked with the float during the parade, where he chatted with some of the notable attendees, asking them what it was like being part of the lively celebration of Pride.
"Guess what? It’s not even about Bravo -- it’s about the LGBT!" Sonja Morgan told AOL exclusively. "Everyone who’s here today could be in the Hamptons, they could be anywhere, they could be on Fire Island, but we’re here today for the LGBT!"
Gizelle Bryant said that "there's no other place I'd rather be right now" and gave a shoutout to The Hat Girls, who made matching rainbow hats for her, Cynthia Bailey and Dorinda Medley for the occasion.
"RHONJ" standout Margaret Josephs made sure to call attention to the importance of the fact that this year's World Pride falls on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots.
"This feels so amazing. I love being here with everyone supporting, especially on the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. This is so magical and just the best feeling ever," she told AOL. "I’ve always been part of the LGBTQ community, but now I have a platform to do great things and have a voice and support the community, so it’s been so great."
"RHOA" newcomer Eva Marcille, who braved the New York City heat for the day despite being pregnant, opened up about reuniting with stars from different "Real Housewives" franchises for such a good cause.
"It’s so cool being here. Last time I saw a lot of these ladies was at Andy’s baby shower, but being here is all about love and pride and inclusivity," she explained to AOL. "We all do different shows with what goes on in life -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- but today is all about accepting us all, flaws and all. At the end of the day, it’s all under the umbrella of beauty. It’s all love."
Bravo stars weren't the only celebs to make appearances during Pride 2019. Lady Gaga, the cast of "Queer Eye" and Madonna also also stepped out over the weekend:

Happy #PRIDE my friends! I know that some people reading this will have endured a lot of pain and struggle in their life purely for the freedom to be themselves. I’m full of respect and admiration for you, because it takes a type of bravery most of us may never have to summon. To have the courage to risk rejection from a family, community or society in order to be yourself - it’s soul damaging at the deepest level and it changes you irrevocably. We love you. Wherever you are in the world, there’s a global family out there just waiting for you!✨
