Promoters Jake Resnicow and Ty Sunderland have joined forces to create the first Plant Pride Festival on June 25 at Brooklyn Mirage. The festival brings six of the LGBTQ+ events – Dreamland, WE Party, XLSIOR, ZeroSpace, Ty Tea, and Love Prism – together.
Galantis, SG Lewis, LP Giobbi, and Ty Sunderland will be headlining the 12 hour event. The festival will feature three music stages with proceeds benefiting Heritage of Pride and FEMME House – offers opportunities for women and LGBTQ+ individuals in music.
Speaking on the festival Jake Resincow said, “I’m psyched to elevate the Pride festival experience with an incredible, diverse lineup across three massive stages at NYC’s best venue. Pride is all about giving back and we’re honoured to benefit FEMME House, which is paving the way for LGBTQ+ individuals in music through scholarships, mentorships, and workshops.” He noted that restrictions no longer keep people from celebrating together.
Promoter Ty Sunderland added, “I’m so gagged to not only be DJing but to be bringing these dance music legends together for one party to celebrate Pride. It’s going to be a very special day.”
Joining Galantis, SG Lewis, LP Giobbi, and Ty Sunderland are ”RuPaul’s Drag Race” alums Aquaria, Gottmik, and Violet Chachki; numerous DJ’s, and more surprise guests.
