“Foodies, all the foodies, louder now, c’mon, all the foodies let’s talk about Pride!” This year’s Garden Party, the official kick-off to World Pride is destined to be a fantasia of restaurant partners, chefs and maybe even a few Top Chef’s. Join The LGBT Community Center and an impressive lineup of seasonal bites (and cocktails, of course) from a broad array of restaurants from every corner of New York and beyond! The Center’s annual Garden Party began as a fundraiser in 1984 with just one vendor. Be sure to bring your appetite as the event is sure to be a gastronomic playground. Restaurants representing last year’s Garden Party include Boqueria, Quality Eats, The Standard Grill, Rice & Gold, Eataly, Dinosaur BBQ, and Island Oyster. Proceeds from Garden Party support The Center’s life-changing and life-saving programs and services 365 days a year.
Established in 1983, The Center empowers people to lead healthy, successful lives. The Center celebrates diversity and advocates for justice and opportunity, hosting over 15,000 events and activities each year. These activities and programs offer health and wellness programs; arts, entertainment and cultural events; parenthood and family support services; and connection to community and resources. In addition to the Garden Party, some events at the center include the LGBT Community Center’s Cycle for the Cause and The LGBT Community Center Dinner (Ricky Martin was the most recent Trailblazer Award winner and Dame Anna Wintour the 2018 Visionary Award winner). The Center hosts a special Think Coffee cafe and outdoor garden, the David Bohnett CyberCenter, the Bureau of General Services – Queer Division (one of NYC’s only queer bookstores and cultural event spaces), the Pat Parker/Vito Russo Center Library and The Center’s National History Archive. The center hosts over 6,000 visitors each week and is considered the cornerstone of New York City’s LGBT community. To learn more visit gaycenter.org.
