Pride at the Seaport
Love is love. And love is all around the neighborhood this month, as we celebrate Pride Month. Here’s what’s on at the Seaport as we honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, memorialize LGBTQIA+ friends we’ve lost, and above all, celebrate and welcome all members of the community into ours.
Drag Brunches at Malibu Farm
Every Saturday in June, local queens Essence and Castrata host a Pride-themed Queens of Malibu Drag Brunch at Malibu Farm on Pier 17. We’re talking big hair, big energy, and the big Cali flavors you love from the veggie-forward menu. There’s also a very extra dessert on the menu this month—the Pridae is comprised of traditional rainbow cookies, “Cherry-Berry” ice cream, fudge brownie chunks, chocolate swirls and chocolate crumble. The drag brunch revelry takes place from 1–3pm on June 4, 11, 18, and 25, and you can reserve a table here.
Pride Night on The Rooftop
Not one but two epic shows will grace The Rooftop at Pier 17 on Wednesday, June 8. First up is the West Side Comedy Club Presents: Queer Comedy at 7pm (doors at 6:30pm), hosted by Caitlin Reese, with performances by Chanel Ali, Jay Jurden, Jaye McBride and Conor Janda. Tickets are $25 per person, with a two-drink minimum. Later that night, at 8:30pm is the Queen of the Greens: Drag Dance Party, where queens Essence and Castrata, along with DJ CLEF, will preside over an over-the-top drag performance and sunset dance party on The Lawns. Mini lawns can be reserved for $150, including a shareable cocktail and admission for up to eight people.
Both events are for guests ages 21+ and contain adult themes. A portion of proceeds will be donated to a local LGBTQIA+ charitable organization. Tickets are available here.
Walk With Me at Seaport Cinema
Stretch out and celebrate love at Seaport Cinema on The Rooftop at Pier 17 on Monday, June 27. Indie film Walk With Me was filmed in Brooklyn, and explores womanhood through the lens of a lesbian relationship. Shot on a micro-budget, the passion project went on to screen at festivals including Inside Out Film Festival and Cinequest Film Festival. A live musical performance by the movie’s cast will take place after the screening. Seaport Cinema is free to attend, but space is limited so arrive early to secure your spot. RSVP here.
Love Wins Every Thyme Cocktails at The Fulton
This proud, colorful cocktail will be available at The Fulton (and other Jean-Georges restaurants in the city) throughout the month of June. Sip on a blend of apricot-infused vodka, yuzu, hibiscus syrup, fresh raspberries, edible flower and thyme. One dollar from every sale of the cocktail will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, which is committed to helping young LGBTQIA+ people thrive.
Hester Street Fair’s Pride Market
Hester Street Fair was named the Best Street Fair in New York City by Time Out New York and on Saturday, June 25th, the fair is devoted to all things Pride. Come on down to Pier 17 to browse Hester Street Fair’s Pride-month lineup of LGBTQIA+ owned and operated local vendors, take in live performances, meet local businesses like our friends at Tagmo, and more.
Pride at Tagmo
Tagmo is the Seaport’s hub of Indian cuisine, a proudly queer- and WOC-run restaurant led by chef Surbhi Sahni. The team at Tagmo is offering a special Pride collection of mithai, traditional South Asian sweets, for a limited time this month. Plus, on Friday, June 17, it will also be the place to be for a joy-filled Pride After Hours Dance Party. DJ Ashu Rai will provide the beats for strutting, vogueing, twerking, and bouncing, and Tagmo will be serving beer, wine, signature cocktails and spirit-free drinks. This 21+ event is all about positivity, so dress up and come to party. Tagmo is a safe space where everyone can feel welcome. Tickets, $20, available here.
Eat Your Pride at Café Patoro
It’s more than OK to eat your feelings! Throughout the month of June, Café Patoro’s menu will feature a Pride cake. The Brazilian bakers’ signature brigadeiro cake looks fabulous dressed up in Pride colors, and is the perfect way to indulge in a decadent dessert.
Cool Off with a Dip from Mister Dips
Mister Dips, home to griddle burgers and delectable dairy creations, will be celebrating Pride with their monthly cone for June: Pride N’ True. Comprised of vanilla custard, cake batter, and all the colors of the rainbow, there’s no better way to cool off and show your pride. Plus, proceeds from this cone will support The Trevor Project, so you can indulge in a dessert and do good all at once.
Shop Pride at Mure + Grand
Neighborhood boutique Mure + Grand will be flaunting its Pride this month, featuring a special collection of products. Proceeds from a new Pride tee, accessories, and more in the lineup will be donated to LGBTQIA+ crisis prevention organization, The Trevor Project.
Stay tuned for more Pride pop-up action at the Seaport this month—as well as other summer events from the LGBTQIA+ community, like Tash Sultana’s performance on June 26, part of the Summer Concert Series on The Rooftop at Pier 17.
