Details coming soon. Below please find details from Youth Pride 2021:
On Saturday, June 26, young people everywhere celebrated NYC Pride with their friends through musical performances, LGBTQIA+ center spotlights, DJ's, and a special ballroom segment.
Youth Pride 2021 was hosted by both Amber Whittington and Jorge “Gitoo” Wright – two powerful influencers and activists who are changing our country (and the world), coast to coast. Whittington, creator of AmbersCloset, is best known for creating content that not only represents her community, but empowers others to show up as their best, most authentic selves. Gitoo, a NYC-native, has carved a space for himself as a creative, host and professional personality who’s known for the electricity he brings to any space he’s in.
Some of the performances, appearances, and sets from last year's Youth Pride included Brita Filter, Deetranada, Mia Lailani, Tarriona 'Tank' Ball, Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, Kate Gil, Citizen Queen, RAYE, Gotham Cheer, Serpentwithfeet, Aaron Rose Philip, Papi Juice, DJ Karaba, and Devan Ibiza.
In addition to bringing top-tier talent to this year’s Youth Pride, NYC Pride partnered with more than 100 organizations in New York City and throughout the United States whose work centers around LGBTQIA+ youth. Among these critical organizations is Centerlink, the international nonprofit organization and member-based association of LGBTQ centers and other LGBTQ organizations serving their local and regional communities. Centerlink, along with several other LGBTQIA+ organizations across the country, hosted virtual, live, or hybrid watch parties for the day's festivities, providing a safe space for celebration for teens everywhere.
