The Official Pride Partner Program is for non-profit organizations and small businesses hosting events with a LGBT theme or focus during the month of June. This program helps raise awareness of Pride events within NYC that enlighten and entertain members and supporters of the LGBT community.
Registering to be an Official Pride Partner has a multitude of benefits that can help increase the profile of your event, from promotion on our social media channels to discounts on event registration. We are consistently able to increase awareness among an interested and eager LGBT audience. Past participants include arts exhibitions, live performances, and sporting events.

The artist explores our relationship to money, power, and fragility through a selection of symbols and pushes them forward through props and rephotography. Using themes of luxury and decadence as a starting point, Geana displays such objects as a one-hundred dollar bill, fake currency, fake diamonds, a skull, a gold gun, shackles, a pitchfork, and a dildo. These objects, created by the artist, are paired with a selection of images of nubile unclad men. In stark contrast to the artist’s commercial work, faces will be hidden or cut off.
