Queer|Art 2024 Pride Celebration

June 29, noon–10pm & 10pm–midnight.
$20

Queer|Art, the national organization connecting and uplifting generations of LGBTQ+ artists, is pleased to announce the 2024 edition of Queer|Art|Pride—the 8th annual summer festival celebrating the brilliant artistry and resilience of NYC’s queer and trans communities.

This year, the organization partners with Body Hack (the collectively run party and mutual aid project fundraising for trans communities across the Americas) and Mister Sunday (the long-running NY Sunday party series) to host The Tuck, a nonstop weekend-long Pride festival. Taking over the entirety of New York City’s Pride weekend, the team will transform Nowadays’ 16,000-square-foot Ridgewood space into an extravaganza of indoor & outdoor festivities. The Tuck will fundraise for GLITS, an organization founded by Ceyenne Doroshow that provides immediate crisis support, healthcare access, and stable housing for transgender and sex worker communities in New York City.

Saturday’s packed slate of programming includes an afternoon celebration for queer and trans families organized by Kelindah bee Schuster, an arts bazaar complete with a clothing swap and local vendor fair, a movie night spotlighting emerging trans filmmakers, and sensational DJ sets by Heavy Pleasure, SCAAARR, Body Hack resident DJs Cisne and ARCHANGEL, as well as drag performances and an iconic back-to-back DJ set by Ceyenne Doroshow and Maya Margarita. After late night dancing, the party continues on Sunday with transcendent sunrise performances by Keioui Keijaun Thomas and Stefa*, poetry readings, a games lounge replete with video, card, and board games, and more.

Attendees will party on the dance floor throughout the entire 36 hour festival, and on Sunday afternoon Mister Sunday returns with a special Pride edition, Mx. Pride, with musical artist Ariel Zetina stepping into the DJ booth to serve up a flawless six hour set that blends techno, Chicago house, and Belizean punta.

The daytime festivities on both Saturday, 6/29 and Sunday, 6/30 are open to all ages, and at night shifts to 21+. Tickets can be purchased via the links below, or at the door.
