The New York City Aids Memorial is celebrating Pride Month with two special events meant to uplift and unify the community. The events merge the importance of honoring those we lost to the AIDS epidemic as well as the Drag community that has been at the forefront of Pride since the beginning.

First, The NYC AIDS Memorial will present the second annual “Legends of Drag” revue on HIV/AIDS Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day, June 5th, featuring performances by Drag professionals who have been instrumental in shaping Drag into what it is today.

On June 15th, the NYC AIDS Memorial will host “A Remembrance”, featuring spoken word and musical performances. The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus will also perform for the first time since the AIDS Memorial was opened in 2016. Whether you’re able to attend in person or not, you’re invited to “remember a friend, a family member, a loved one, a mentor, or a hero, or to honor an activist, organization, ally, or noteworthy community member.” You can learn more about scheduling and programming for “A Remembrance” by following this link.
