Playbill Pride's Celebration in Times Square is well underway! 

The June 29 festivities began with a celebration of the NYC Summer Youth Employment Program at 11 AM, presented by SUMMIT One Vanderbilt. The program was launched to connect young people who identify as LGBTQIA+ with supportive, welcoming paid summer jobs and career experiences. 

Featured performers included Britney with Lesley Salinas and Kai Santiago Alli, Genisys-Exodus, Brandy Light, Elle Prado, and Tormenta. See photos from the event below.

Next up was the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), which is again teaming up with Grubhub to offer Community Impact Grants to NYC-based LGBTQIA+ and allied bars and restaurants. This year's recipients were recognized on stage at this event, which was hosted by NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson.  

The event also featured The Broadway Boys, a group made up of Jesse Nager (Motown), Michael Williams (Titanique), Darius Anthony Harper (The Preacher’s Wife), and Steven Huynh (Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas). See photos below.

Festivities continued throughout the weekend. The afternoon on Saturday saw the return of one of Pride in Times Square's most eagerly anticipated events, the Big Broadway Disco where revelers danced the night away to classic and contemporary Broadway songs and performances, all with a special disco flare. Joining this dance-filled celebration were host Bryan Campione, DJ Mike Borowski, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Eric Michael Krop, Tracy McDowell, Galyana Castillo, Madge, Darius Anthony Harper, Anne Fraser Thomas, Marti Cummings, Grant Evan, Bianca De Sarro, Kristen Plati, Karley Wasaff, King Queen, Ernest Terrelle Williams, and Paris L’Hommie. Specialty dancers are supported by PJ Adzima, and the fabulous wardrobe is by DW.

The weekend will close June 30 as the Playbill Pride Float returns to the NYC Pride March, with supporting partner Heritage of Pride. Double-decker buses from some of the Pride in Times Square sponsors will also get in on the fun, helping to make 2024 NYC Pride extra special.
