NYC PRIDE PRESENTS
PIER 97 NYC
SATURDAY JUNE 29
NYC PRIDE is thrilled to announce its first phase of talent announcements with the legendary Saturday headliner GRACE JONES, along with TEYANA TAYLOR, PABLLO VITTAR, and more for PRIDE ISLAND 2019. Pride Island, the multi-day live musical event featuring dazzling performances, will take place from Saturday, June 29 to Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Pier 97 in New York City.
GRACE JONES, an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and actress, began her successful career as a model in NYC and Paris. In 1977 she secured her first record deal which resulted in a string of dance-club hits, including “I Need A Man,” and her acclaimed reinvention of Edith Piaf’s classic, “La Vie En Rose.” TEYANA TAYLOR, one of the most versatile entertainers of her generation, is set to give face and New York ballroom realness during Saturday’s lineup. Also set to blaze the stage is Brazil’s most famous drag queen, PABLLO VITTAR. Rounding out Saturday night, is Afro-Latina pop sensation, AMARA LA NEGRA, along with popular NYC DJ JOHNNY DYNELL, who will bring his infectious and inclusive style to the stage.

And speaking of STONEWALL 50 (as we will be so many times this year), Johnny began his NYC season on Valentine’s Night spinning live at the NY PUBLIC LIBRARY for the opening of their important show LOVE + RESISTANCE: STONEWALL 50. He also created a Spotify list to accompany the exhibit, which is up till 7/14.
DANIEL NARDICIO + DWORLD PRESENT
THE DWORLD UNDERWEAR PARTY
SUNDAYS AT BEDLAM
Johnny’s been resident at Daniel Nardicio’s famous DWORLD UNDERWEAR PARTY ON FIRE ISLAND for several years now, so its only natural for him to spin for its newborn East Village spawn. Less than sixty days until Fire Island festivities kick off, DWORLD has you (un)covered at BEDLAM every Sunday. Come show off those Spring bodies and dance to one of New York City’s true dance floor masters. Bonus Beats: Once a month, JD will spin “JOCK YOUR BODY” a special edition featuring his Gay 90s soundtrack (beginning 3/24). Only $10 in underwear or jockstrap, $5 in anything less!
