Live Arts’ epic 6-hour celebration honors the historical importance and unwavering power of collectives in LGBTQAI culture and pays tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. Both legendary and young families from NYC’s queer nightlife and art scene come together under one roof to serve up the city’s most colorful and fierce performance, music, queer marketplace, installations and more for a multi-space, nonstop celebration for the ages.

Featuring performances and installations from the Legendary House of LaBeija, the oldest and most revered house in New York’s drag and ballroom scene, as well as the vibrant and inclusive artist collectives, Bubble_T, Papi Juice, RAGGA and Switch n’ Play.

One of the third floor performance studios will feature a pensive, experiential, and durational installation by RAGGA, designed to inspire all of the 5 senses. The second studio will feature the lead sponsor Tito’s Handmade Vodka Pride Lounge providing space for rest, nourishment, and rehydration.

Prior to doors opening, Brooklyn’s favorite wise-cracking and colorful drag queen Ragamuffin will host POZLUCK, a potluck social for queer people living with HIV and their close ones.  Created and managed by Ragamuffin monthly, POZLUCK is friendly, private, and casual; it provides a space and opportunity for all kinds of queer people living with HIV to create a network of support through delicious food and conversation. Attendance is by RSVP only by emailing

Live Arts’ lobby remains a public space offering refreshments, shade, bathrooms, and water fountains for Pride parade participants and floats lining up in their holding spaces along our 19th street block. Also free and open to the public is the queer market place in the lobby featuring local artists selling clothing, makeup, jewelry, and more!

The Live Gallery lobby wall will feature a large-scale installation by Avram Finkelstein and Rodrigo Moreira – a special co-presentation with Visual AIDS and their Stonewall 50th Anniversary activist broadsheet project WHAT IS 21ST CENTURY LIBERATION? with an opening reception on June 6th at 5:30 PM.
