Sin Dee NYC’s Guide to Pride (2021)

Here’s The T in NYC

Sin Dee NYC & Friends at an NYC Pride March

The sun is shining, the masks are coming off, and the rainbows are flying high. It’s June in NYC which means it’s PRIDE month! There’s nothing better than hitting the streets covered in rainbows & sparkles, to shout your support of all LGBTQ+ people, and join in some of the most outrageous parties of the year. Last year’s NYC Pride events were canceled as expected, but with restrictions easing up, a theme for this year’s festivities was appropriately announced in February: “The Fight Continues”.

“In 2020 our world dramatically changed very quickly and in a matter of weeks we were forced to pivot to virtual programming and cancel many of our events. With much more time to prepare in 2021, we’re bringing back many of the events we were forced to cancel last year, most notably Youth Pride which will engage LGBTQIA+ youth, many of whom are grappling with the absence of in-person connection.”

David A. Correa, Interim Executive Director of NYC Pride

Reading is Fundamental, but Knowledge is Power

Before you head out and join the marches, get educated on the history of the Pride movement. Most of the streaming services release collections of LGBTQ+ themed documentaries, shows, and movies throughout the month of June.

We recommend you give these a watch:

Coming Out (of Quarantine)

Just in time for summer, NYC is finally seeing a lift in COVID restrictions like social distancing, crowd control, and mask wearing. Though most organizations are continuing to opt for virtual events, we are seeing some in-person parties pop up on the radar.

Category is Rock & Rally Realness

The Official Sinners love any excuse to dress up in a theme or costume. Naturally we’ve started piecing together our outfits for Pride a few months ago, but you’re not too late to get your party gear.

Some of the coolest rainbow-wear we’ve seen is just one click away at favorite online retailers:

  • Kenneth Cole is not only a badass Brooklynite and fashion designer, but he’s always been philanthropic at heart too. This watch is currently on sale in his website’s Pride Collection and proceeds go towards The Mental Health Coalition. Thank you guilt-free shopping.
  • If you’re less Rocker Chic and more Pin-Up Queen, you’ll love Unique Vintage’s Pride Collection. We’re obsessed with this adorable unicorn rainbow romper (show at right). Perfect for a warm Pride festival day.
  • Top off your look with some flashy accessories from every goth’s favorite mall haunt, Hot Topic. Because everyone needs a metal-cat-in-a-pride-vest enamel pin right?
