Bronx LGBT Pride & Health Fair

By Charlotte Robinson, July 20, 2013
Today the new Bronx LGBTQ Center will hold its 2013 pride event which will feature nearly 100 different entertainers, speakers & organizations. The event will be held Saturday July 20th at Crotona Park from Noon to 6P at the amphitheater south of Indian Lake, north of the picnic area. Peter C. Frank, the Center's secretary who also chairs their pride committee stated, “Keeping in line with doing things differently, our pride event will be different from other borough's events at its very core as it will incorporate a health fair, where over 12 health-oriented organizations will provide on-site health screenings that will include rapid HIV testing, blood glucose/diabetes screenings & blood pressure testings & more. More than 40 organizations in total have signed on to provide information & outreach to pride participants.” This year's event is co-hosted by internationally-renown drag entertainers Appolonia Cruz & Tyra A. Ross, with Lady Clover Honey serving as the event's Welcome Maven. Billboard Top 20 & MTV/LOGO recording artist Adam Barta, who is a Bronx native, will headline the event stating, “I'm super-excited to be rocking it out in my hometown where I was born and raised! Can't wait to see how Bronx does it best. And I'm so happy to be supporting such a great, new organization.” He will preview his new duet with RuPaul's Drag Race Star Pandora Boxx in his performance on Saturday. Appolonia Cruz added, “I support the new Bronx LGTBQ Center because they have proven to me that they are serious about helping our Bronx LGBTQ community by putting this much needed 2013 Bronx Gay Pride Festival / Health Fair together with zero funding, based solely on donations from our community and supporters. All the NYC boroughs had their Gay Pride Festivals this past June & the Bronx Needed one too.”
