By Charlotte Robinson, March 29, 2022

NYC Pride announced that pop superstar Kim Petras is this year’s Pride Island headliner. The first fully in-person Pride Island in 3 years will also move to a new location with the announcement of Play Lawn at Governors Island as this year’s Pride Island venue. Other marquee talent at this year’s Pride Island taking place Friday June 24th through Sunday June 26th includes Papi Juice. Lauren Cheeseborough, Pride Island Event Manager stated, “With our first ever trans headliner & our move to Governors Island, this will truly be a historic weekend in the history of Pride. The expansion of Pride Island to a 3-day event creates new experiences for the community to love & live their truth by dancing freely without fear of consequence.” Additionally, Eddie Martinez, Dani Toro & Alex Chapman will DJ live on the last day of Pride Island. Additional performers will be announced at a later date. Mario Schmitt, Pride Island Director concluded, "Pride Island is rooted in a history dating back more than 30 years. After being silenced for the past 2 years due to the pandemic, we are coming back with one of the biggest events in Pride history. We are proud to be breaking barriers by introducing our first Pride Island headliner of the transgender experience." Heritage of Pride, Inc. is the volunteer-directed organization behind the official NYC Pride roster of events. Heritage of Pride’s mission is to work toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. They do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate, & celebrate our diverse community. For More Info…
