2024 Pride at the Whitney

Celebrate Pride at the Whitney all month long. Discover the queer history of the Meatpacking District, dance the night away at a party inspired by New York’s iconic ballroom culture, and get creative with artists. This June, drop by the Museum to enjoy inclusive activities for all ages. LGBTQ+ visitors and allies are invited to free parties, film screenings, creative workshops, performances, and more. 

Whitney Pride is part of the Museum’s ongoing commitment to support LGBTQ+ artists and communities and offers an inclusive space for all to gather and enjoy American art. Please note that registration is required for most programs.
