Mayor Adams announces Pride Month Celebration with rainbow lights, flags

 

In a vibrant display of support for the LGBTQ+ community, New York City Mayor, Eric Adams, has announced that City Hall and several municipal buildings will be illuminated in rainbow colors starting tomorrow.

This initiative marks the beginning of Pride Month and underscores the city’s commitment to inclusivity and equality. Additionally, City Hall will prominently feature the Pride flag, the Philly Pride flag, and the Transgender flag on its portico throughout June.

Mayor Adams emphasized the importance of these symbols, stating, “New York City shines with pride as the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ+ movement. As our nation celebrates the 55th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, we remember and reaffirm our city’s responsibility to remain a safe haven for all. While localities across the nation and governments around the world continue their hateful attacks and rhetoric, we will always advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, here and beyond. This Pride Month, we will let every member of our LGBTQ+ community know: We are here for you and our administration will always have your back.”

In addition to City Hall, the Bronx County Courthouse, Brooklyn Borough Hall, the David N. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building, and the New York City Department of Sanitation Spring Street Salt Shed will also be illuminated in rainbow colors.

These displays aim to celebrate Pride Month and honor the city’s legacy as a leader in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights.
