First Friday’s Gathering Of The LGBT Pride Edition At The Schomburg In Harlem

To kick off LGBT Pride Month, the Schomburg Center is proud to present the third annual First Fridays: LGBT Pride social gathering, in honor of our In the Life Archive.
a collection of materials of and by black LGBT people throughout history preserved in our Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division.

Complementing the party will be a special pop-up exhibit culled from our collections highlighting the life and work of LGBT activist Storme DeLarverie, who’s credited as having thrown the first punch against police which sparked the 3-day Stonewall riots.

Celebrate pride with the music of DJ Missy B and Craig Nice in the Langston Hughes Lobby and jam to DJ Frankie Paradise in our American Negro Theatre as you enjoy our signature drinks and extended viewing hours in our galleries.

PLUS, Legendary drag performer Harmonica Sunbeam will hit the stage for a legendary performance.
