Acting Queens Borough President Sharon Lee, Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and Councilman Daniel Dromm are co-hosting the borough’s annual LGBTQIA+ Pride Month Celebration virtually on Thursday.
You can livestream the virtual event by visiting www.queensbp.org.
It will feature a performance by Miss LCA, a special message by actor John Leguizamo, and music by DJ Miss Hap. The event will also feature a tribute to those who have lost their lives to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The panel discussion will feature members of the Caribbean Equality Project, the LGBT Network, Out Rockaway and Queens Pride.
“Although we are not able to celebrate in Borough Hall together this year, we remember the history of pride and the trans women of color who took a stand against police brutality 51 years ago,” Van Bramer said.
“Queer liberation has always been a fight for social justice and we continue that fight today here in Queens. Happy Pride!”
