Governors Island

Tips from the community

Celebrate pride with one of the most extravagant Pride music festivals in the world! With headliners including Kim Petras, Lil Kim, and more this is one long party you won't want to miss. Taking place on June 25th and 26th, head to the battery to hop on a ferry to an island party embracing Pride.

This scenic island is so close, yet feels so far, for the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. The ferry is free on Saturdays and Sundays before noon, and once you get there, you can hike, bike, or splurge on mini golf.

It hasn't opened yet, but I bet QC NY Spa on Governor's Island will be a must-visit for its Italian-style thermal pools. Counting down the days until it opens.

From the iconic annual march through Manhattan to plenty of unique pop-up events throughout the city- these are some of the exciting festivities coming up on the Pride calendar. Enjoy delicious food from Black LGBTQIA+ chefs at a Pride brunch, watch the screening of an up-and-coming LGBTQIA+ film, witness rainbow flags sail alongside the island of Manhattan, or dance the night away at a Pride music festival.
