NYC Pride is proud to introduce the legendary Pride Island experience in a new virtual format. This new, inclusive evolution remains the central programming hub for the LGBTQ community to celebrate Pride either at your favorite gathering spot in town or in the comfort of your own home.
Don’t miss Dancing Through the Decades as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary of dancing openly with the ones we love. Help us give back to the broader community! NYC Pride will be selecting non-profits within the local New York City area to receive grants as part of this community driven event. Pride Island serves as a fundraiser to help NYC Pride raise crucial funds to produce a multitude of free events such as Youth Pride, Family Movie Night, The Rally, and many more!
This year's Pride Island welcomes again the legendary DJ Lina Bradford born and raised in New York City. Her career in entertainment began at an early age as a dancer performing in several companies throughout New York. Those moves she learned would become part of her signature style when, 25 years ago, she left the dance stage for the dance floor, spinning records all over New York and Europe including her legendary ten-year residence on Fire Island.
Tickets will become available to all purchasers for Pride Island April 19 starting at 12:00pm EDT.
