It’s Pride Week! And though there’s less cause for celebration this year than last—as you may recall, the passage of gay marriage in New York state fell fortuitously right before the state’s LGBT community was to celebrate itself—New York’s festivities tend to put other cities’ to shame. Today, the party promoter Josh Wood is throwing The Day Party, an all-day outdoor dance party suspended above the Hudson. Guests who opt for the “VIP” package get a cruise around the Statue of Liberty, a symbol that likely has a special meaning for this group (leaving aside her very last-season diaphanous green robes). The party goes until 10:30—though surely there’ll be at least a few afterparties!
Pier 83, 42nd Street and West Side Highway, 3pm; tickets and information can be found at http://www.showclix.com/event/THEDAYPARTY.
