You Should Go: NYC All-Ages Pride Party with Everyone is Gay and Autostraddle at Bluestockings

Yo, Pride month is here. Whatever that means for you, we hope you enjoy it. If you’re headed out to Riis Beach to soak in the topless and queer section, go, baby, go. If you’re at the crafts store buying out their entire glitter and stickers section, we hope your credit card goes through.

Pride can also be tough. All the parties are so focused on booze and ladiesladiesladies!!!! What if that sentence alone makes you feel like you need a nap? Also, what if you’re under 21? What if you don’t drink? Where do you go? What do you do??

We’ve got you, lil queermo. Everyone is Gay, Bluestockings Books and Autostraddle have gotten together to throw the best All-Ages Pride Party in New York City.

Everyone is Gay co­founder Kristin Russo, along with Autostraddle’s Gabby Rivera, will emcee. We’re going to have music by Jenny Owen Youngs and Mal Blum! Spoken word by Gabby and Khalin Vasquez, a Lincoln Center Poet-Linc alum.


Jenny and Mal breaking hearts

Admission is free!!

There’s a suggested door donation of $5 to benefit the work done by Everyone is Gay, Autostraddle, and Bluestockings. But don’t sweat it if you can’t swing it — just come be with us! Bring your lil baby dyke cousin, all of your friends, your college roommate and their Tinder date. Bring everyone you know and love.

And then carry on to the NYC Dyke March!

  1. I don’t think I’ll ever live in NYC, but the frequency of Mal Blum performing in that area makes me wish I could visit more often!!!

  2. WHY OH WHY DO I NOT LIVE IN NYC? I don’t want to live there, really, but I do when I see stuff like this.

    • WAIT. I will be driving to NYC that day. What if I came a little earlier. WHAT THEN?!

      I’d be exhausted but also could be at Bluestockings!

      • wait. i will be in new jersey the day before.

        what if i stayed an extra day and then came to new york for this.

        kaelyn, if this happens, it’s your fault. good work.

        • YEEEES! We will probably be staying in NJ, so… I mean, I’ll definitely be there that day. It’s just a question of whether I run into traffic on the 6 hr drive.

  3. This is most amazing. Please tell me you’re going to pack up the whole shebang and bring it to St. Pete Pride as well? Pretty please?

  4. So excited about this. To actually be in the States for Pride Month is one thing, but to actually be able to attend an AS event is another. And with EIG! It’s too much.

  5. Hey peeples. This will be my first meet up with anyone from this site. Any other Jersey/NY ladies going? Can’t wait to meet ya!

  6. We’re gonna drive our little butts off to get there! I’m gonna play this on repeat the whole way:
