Although Pride Month is almost over, we’re finally approaching the most exciting weekend yet! With the main parade coming up, followed by a few other events and marches, the festivities are finally starting!
The Javits Center is hosting their annual WE Party, also known as the World’s Biggest Pride Event, this Saturday and Sunday, and they’ve just announced a very special guest star. That’s right, the Hocus Pocus, Golden Globe and Grammy winning queen, Bette Midler, will grace the audience with a performance featuring composer Marc Shaiman (Hairspray/Mary Poppins Returns) in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots (11pm).
Other performers include, none other than Cyndi Lauper, Beyonce’s personal choreographer Chris Grant and dance/theatrical group, STOMP. Not only will you be partying it up to some amazing music, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to #PartyWithAPurpose, as all proceeds generated from the two day event will be donated to LGBTQ+ charities, such as Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative and LIFEBeat.
Who’s ready to be a part of one of the biggest and most important weekends in NYC?!
When: Saturday June 29th; 9pm, Sunday June 30th; 6pm.
