On Sunday it’s Abel and Morabito!
One of the pinnacle events of NYC Pride, Pride Island is set to draw all the boys (and gurls) to the yard again in 2019. Just in 2017 the Dance on the Pier changed gears and evolved into a new multi-day LGBTQIA+ cultural experience named Pride Island. After a hugely successful two consecutive years downtown, NYC Pride will bring Pride Island uptown to Hell’s Kitchen in a new location at Hudson River Park’s, Pier 97. This event showcases everyone from legendary soul singers to indie pop bands and has an incredible history of attracting the some of biggest performers for any Pride event in the world. Deborah Cox has belted out “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” to hundreds of thousands of screaming fans with the Hudson River looming in the distance. Previous performers and DJs have included Cher, Patti Labelle, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, DJ Boris, Demi Lovato, DJ Lina, Tegan & Sara, Chus & Ceballos and the late great Whitney Houston. Just last year Pride Island featured an incredible lineup of DJs and performers including Sasha Velour, Big Freedia, Tove Lo, DJ Corey Craig, DJ Grind and “The Goddess of Pop” Kylie Minogue. Despite a bit of rain Kylie serenaded the crowd with hits like “Love at First Sight”, “Get Outta My Way”, “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” as well as a few hits off her most recent album. She truly brought down the house with her own rendition of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” and finished the evening with her hit song “All the Lovers.”
All proceeds from Pride Island benefit New York City’s official Pride events including Youth Pride, Family Movie Night, PrideFest, The March, The Rally and local LGBTQIA+ community organizations. NYC Pride will be selecting nonprofits within the local New York City area to receive grants as part of this community driven event. The event’s production committee awards over $50,000 in grants to nonprofits and community organizations.
