We wish we could clone ourselves! We've got Pride weekend happening in both San Francisco and New York this weekend and we want to fly our Pride flags on both coasts!
Officially, Instinct will be present for San Francisco's Pride festivites on both Saturday and Sunday. We'll be offering subscriptions and signing people up for our forthcoming digital subscription. And yes, we'll also be doing some free giveways so make sure to stop by and say "HEY GIRL, HEY!"
Unofficially, you know we'll also have some operatives celebrating in New York. Details on the amazing NYC events that we know you won't want to miss after the jump!
Our New York friends, Rafferty/Mazur Events, who host our amazing monthly issue release parties at Griffin Sundays, are hosting the only official NYC Pride event:
Hudson Terrace: 621 W. 46th St
2pm-10pm / Open Bar 2p-3pm
Saturday, June 23
Take note, last year advance tickets sold out two weeks in advance and this year the same thing happened, BUT there will be a limited number of tickets for sale at the door so get there early so you don't miss out.
No, but seriously, you'll miss out.
They've got an epic DJ lineup this year with The Freemasons (NYC Pierdance 2011), MotoBlanco (UK), and Corey Craig (NYC). This is the first time ever that the Freemasons are DJ'ing with Motoblanco at the same time, so be present!
If you find your way downtown at South Street Seaport, look for our girl, DJ Brynn Taylor (we love her!), who'll be spinning at the womens' LGBT Pride event:
Beekman Beer Garden: 89 South St.
Sunday, June 24
Yes, it's an event for the ladies, but hey, they've got Wodka Vodka sponsoring, plus a performance from Cyndi Lauper. Did we mention that a portion of the proceeds are going to Cyndi's True Colors Fund?
Brought to the ladies by Maggie C. Events, this one may be worth throwing on a wig and faking your way in.
