“NYC Pride means freedom! I love the lesbian parties and the parade and all the people coming together. NYC helps us come together. It’s a bigger city, and that means a bigger community.”

On the eve of the Pride March, thousands of LGBTQ women gather on the Lower East Side for the Teaze HER dance party. The event is one of Pride weekend’s most exuberant; it takes place on a rooftop and features sexy dancers along with an all-star DJ lineup. We caught up with some New Yorkers at last year’s edition to discuss NYC Pride, Stonewall and what the week means to them.
