Queens Pride presents, in conjunction with event partners NYCpride, Brooklyn Pride, Staten Island LGBT Center, LGBTQ Center of the Bronx and Out Astoria, the 4th Annual Pre-Pride Kick Off Party at Studio Square, 35-33 36th St., Long Island City, starting at 6 p.m. May 29. The event will be an evening of fun, entertainment and celebration in anticipation of the first of New York City’s Pride parades, taking place June 1 in Jackson Heights.
The Garden at Studio Square is a great outdoor setting where Queens Pride’s friends and supporters in past years have made this an event not to miss. On hand for the evening will be one of its longtime supporters, ACQC, the AIDS Center of Queens County. Donations of $10 or more will receive a complimentary beverage and help support this wonderful organization now in its 28th year of service to the community.
“ACQC is a long-time partner of Queens Pride, and we are very pleased that the kick-off party will help in their important efforts,” said Hank Krumholz, Co-chair, Queens Pride.
On stage will be a special performance by Haus of Mimosa, a hilariously funny improv comedy team featuring your favorite aunts from Queens.
