Last year’s NYC Pride celebration was giddy with delight because of the Supreme Court’s decision to make same-sex marriage legal throughout America. Things are expected to take a more somber yet angry tone this year in reaction to the horrific mass shooting in Orlando. In a letter posted on its website, NYC Pride co-chairs Maryanne Roberto Fine and David Studinski explain, “Some folks have asked if any of our events will be canceled for safety reasons. All events will continue to go on as scheduled. The reason for this is simple: we must never let those who wish to silence us win.” As always, the ticketed events are selling out fast, so you better act quickly if you want to shake your groove thang at some pretty crazy parties.
