Pride Live, a social advocacy and community engagement organization for the LGBTQ+ community, and iHeartMedia New York, have announced the second annual Stonewall Day. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, Pride Live and iHeartMedia New York will bring multi-generational LGBTQ+ communities and allies together through the power of music at Pride Live’s Stonewall Day concert, presented by United Airlines.
The concert will take place in New York City on Friday, June 28. It will be hosted by Elvis Duran, iHeartMedia New York’s Z100, and 103.5 KTU, which will offer listeners a chance to attend Pride Live’s Stonewall Day concert by visiting https://z100.iheart.com/prideliveto claim tickets.
Stonewall Day, launched by Pride Live in 2018, is a national day of awareness that is recognized each year on June 28 to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Pride Live has brought together more than 50 celebrities, activists, and community leaders – Stonewall Ambassadors – who have worked together over the past 12 months to elevate awareness and support for those who fought for equality against intense discrimination and aggression.
“The Stonewall Riots are widely considered to represent the beginning of the fight for full LGBTQ+ equality,” said Havilah Clarke, Pride Live Board President. “As the world prepares to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of that historic night, our goal is to help continue that legacy in a way that best responds to today’s community and ever-changing world.”
The day is a free ticketed event that will feature a collective of activists, artists, business leaders, influencers, and celebrities. The concert will be streamed live on the Z100 website, and attendees must have a ticket to gain entry to the event. Visit https://z100.iheart.com/pridelive for a chance to gain entry.
The New York Red Bulls will also team up with Pride Live, as well as other local non-profit LGBTQ+ organizations, to host the third annual Pride Night presented by Bayer when the Chicago Fire visit Red Bull Arena. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales and game jerseys will benefit Pride Live. Tickets are available at http://www.newyorkredbulls.com/pride.
