About the event
This year's theme, "Embracing Ourselves" aims to uplift and empower LGBTQ+ individuals and in particular to stand in solidarity with our Trans and BIPOC community members.
The event focuses on the transformative journey of self-discovery and acceptance, reflecting on and celebrating our coming out stories. We will be providing a safe space for the Brooklyn LGBTQ+ community, in all its diversity, to fully express and embrace ourselves. We invite you to join us to this joyous space for our community to come together. (RSVP before Friday to get an exclusive 40% discount code from Revel to ride with pride on Saturday and all month long!)
