Pride Month is as much of a New York City staple as Broadway and the Statue of Liberty.
The month-long celebration started in Greenwich Village over 50 years ago as a tribute to the Stonewall Riots — each year, it honors the trials and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ communities.
Last year’s theme, “Unapologetically Us,” was an ode to resiliency, with LGBTQIA+ individuals asserting their identities and reclaiming their space in the world. This year’s theme, “Strength in Solidarity,” brings the community back to its roots, emphasizing its history of sparking collective change.
Rockefeller Center is commemorating the occasion with its annual campus-wide fête. Along with Pride art installations across campus, Rockefeller Center is decorated in technicolor with rainbow pathways on Center Plaza and Pride flags around The Rink and the Weather Room at Top of The Rock.
