NYC Pride Announces Times Square for WorldPride Closing Ceremony

Melissa Etheridge to perform at June 30th Ceremony

NYC Pride’s official WorldPride Closing Ceremony welcomes all to a final celebration of pride on Sunday, June 30th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm in NYC’s iconic Times Square.
The evening will provide a full slate of influential speakers and global musical talents who represent the cultural diversity, tenacity, and grace of the LGBTQIA+ community. One of the renowned artists slated to perform is Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter, Melissa Etheridge.
“I am thrilled to perform at the WorldPride Closing Ceremony while commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising,” said Etheridge. “Times Square will play home to a momentous multitude of LGBTQIA+ individuals. It will be an evening of love, pride, and community.”
Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. On October 7, Melissa Etheridge released Memphis Rock & Soul, her first album since 2014’s critically lauded This Is M.E. Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, the album has received stellar reviews. Etheridge is also featured on the cover of the Holiday 2018 NYC Pride Guide: WorldPride Preview.
As historic with other cities that have hosted WorldPride, a closing ceremony indicates the conclusion of the Pride celebration and a proverbial “passing of the torch” to the next city who will host.
“Over 4 million people will descend upon New York City for the largest LGBTQIA+ gathering in our history,” said Chris Frederick, NYC Pride’s Managing Director. “We look forward to closing out Pride in celebration and in commemoration of our ingenious history and our invaluable collected experiences as a community.”
The official lineup for the WorldPride Closing Ceremony will be announced in February. For more information, visit: www.worldpride.org.
