June 25th – Pride in the Vines, LGBT Youth Prom
Pride on Long Island goes far beyond Long Beach, so why not take it from one end of the island to another? Keep the party going with ‘hop on, hop off’ transportation service to the famed vineyards of Long Island’s East End.
Miss out on prom? Your second chance is here. Party on at the Crest Hollow Country Club to experience one of the seemingly most important events of high school. Mix and mingle with a mocktail, dance, eat and see who is crowed in this year’s Rainbow Court.
June 27th – Pride Alive After Five in Patchogue
Long Islanders are itching to express their pride and support, so the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce has set out to fulfill these wishes. The first Alive After Five of the summer will feature 10 bands at 10 different restaurants along main street, 8 different artists, and dozens of craft and food vendors. This neighborhood is making great leaps to show their pride and support for the LGBT community.
All Summer Long
Head to Fire Island for a truly unique experience that provides sanctuary (and a place to party) to all people, both LGBT and otherwise. Cherry Grove and the Fire Island Pines are two hamlets known for their restaurants, nightlife venues, boutiques and beaches.
