Until June 30th: #Ascend With Pride, FDR Four Freedoms Park

"On Saturday, June 15 from 12:00-6:00 PM, FDR Four Freedoms State Park will host #AscendWithPride: An Afternoon with Friends & Family," Madeline Grimes, Director of Strategic Partnerships, tells The Daily. "This free World Pride celebration for all ages will include food trucks for a special picnic on the lawn (with wine and beer available for purchase), VideoOut onsite all day capturing coming out stories for their online library and Drag Queen Story Hour, at 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM, reading books that focus on diversity and inclusivity, from Little Bee Books."

It's Gay Pride Month in New York City. Four Freedoms Park is onboard.

The event serves as the official unveiling of New York City’s largest pride flag, here on Roosevelt Island.

From Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 30, the Park’s monumental staircase will transform into a massive, 12’ x 100’ LGBTQ Pride Flag to celebrate the universal human rights articulated in FDR’s Four Freedoms Speech: freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

FDR Four Freedoms State Park, located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in the East River between Manhattan and Queens, is best accessed using public transit. Options include the Roosevelt Island Tram, New York City Bus & Subway and the NYC Ferry.

Free registration info can be found here.
