Walk On A Rainbow In The Sky At ‘Edge’ In NYC To Celebrate Pride

See a rainbow from a new perspective at the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere.

Popular sky deck ‘Edge’ in Hudson Yards is celebrating Pride Month 1,131 feet in the air!

In collaboration with Born This Way Foundation, co-founded by Lady Gaga and her mother to support mental health, promote kindness and raise LGBTQIA+ voices, ‘Edge’ will be showcasing numerous Pride activations to raise money in support of the LGBTQIA+ community.

One of the most notable activations is the gigantic Edge x Born This Way Skyline Steps Art Installation.

To honor the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community and Born This Way Foundation’s mission of fostering a braver and kinder world, the regular skyline steps will turn into a rainbow of colors this month.

Visitors are encouraged by the Born This Way Foundation to share the installation with kind, affirming messages to celebrate and accept and everyone’s most authentic selves.

“We are proud to partner with Born This Way Foundation and help amplify their mission to build a kinder braver world. Edge was always envisioned as a place for everyone to share in the magic of our great City—we stand with the LGBTQIA+ community in celebrating Pride all year long,” shared Jason Horkin, Executive Director of Hudson Yards Experiences.

In addition to the skyline steps, the collaboration will also feature a “Born This Way” cocktail, ‘Sky High’ Pride Yoga class, and a Born This Way Foundation Pride Package.

As for the Born This Way Foundation Pride Package, it includes:

  • Admission to the outdoor sky deck
  • One “Born This Way” cocktail
  • Edge x Born This Way Foundation Postcard meant to spread kind and loving words that will be forwarded through LGBTQIA+ community organizations to youth all over the nation.
