If you walk by Lincoln Center this month, you’ll be greeted by the full spectrum of the rainbow in dazzling lights and artwork.
June is Pride Month, a historic time to celebrate and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. Last year, Lincoln Center lit up in Pride colors with incredible light displays for the first time in its history, and they’re continuing the tradition again this year, with even more pizzaz.
This year, the steps of the iconic Josie Robertson Plaza will be rainbow, along with a colorful fountain display inside the brand new public lawn The Green.
“For the entire month of June, these installations will honor the histories, struggles, and contributions of the LGBTQIA+ communities and celebrate the full spectrum of queer identity,” a press release stated.
They will also have special LGBTQ+ programming June 24-30 including plays, concerts, Silent Discos, and more, which are all free to attend through a Today Tix lottery. It’s a special Pride edition of their Restart Stages program, taking place on the iconic campus all summer and fall and offering amazing outdoor performances. Find more info here.
Every year other NYC landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Barclays Center, and more usually light in rainbow toward PRIDE weekend June 27.
