LGBTQ Pride Month Reception 2019

June 20, 2019

“This community – you changed our city, you marched, you fought, you stood up and said ‘we’re here. we’re trans and queer and we’re not going anywhere,” said First Lady Chirlane McCray as she started the evening off at Gracie Mansion at the LGBTQ Pride Month Reception.

The program also included remarks by Steven Canals, the Co-Creator of POSE, who accepted the proclamation on behalf of the cast of POSE. Cast members Mj Rodriguez and Angelica Ross joined Steven  on stage.
