Description

We’re excited to kick off LGBT Pride Month at the Schomburg Center with our 5th annual First Fridays: Gay Pride Edition and with recognition of our In the Life Archive, a collection of materials of and by black LGBT people throughout history preserved in our Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division. 
Join us as we celebrate PRIDE with the music of DJ Missy B and Craig Nice in the Langston Hughes Lobby and jam to DJ Frankie Paradise in our Schomburg Courtyard as you enjoy our signature drinks and extended viewing hours in our galleries.

The event will be hosted by Lee Soulja from Black Pride NYC. Legendary drag performer Harmonica Sunbeam will also hit the stage for a legendary performance!

With our extended hours, guests are invited to check out our current exhibitions Crusader: Martin Luther King Jr. and Syncretic Vibrations. You'll also be able to sign up for a Schomburg membership, become a Schomburg volunteer, and visit the Schomburg Shop—while networking and dancing the night away!
Suggested donations are welcome. 

Dress code is FABULOUS!
