There’s a significant absence of color in New York’s skyline, but that won’t be the case this weekend as the city gears up for its annual Pride celebrations. On Sunday, June 24 New Yorkers and visitors will be dressed in ROYGBIV from head-to-toe during the Pride March, which culminates with a special New York landmark lighting up in rainbow colors after dark.

Buildings and bridges that participated before include the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center the Kosciuszko Bridge and City Hall. But we can confirm that the Empire State Building is for sure participating again this year. Make sure to peep our list of rooftop bars to get the best view of this display of city-wide support for the LGBT community. Whether you plan on marching, attending the wide-range of Gay Pride events and parties or getting down at the city’s most happening gay bars, spread all the love this weekend.
