Cher Announced As NYC Pride Dance On The Pier Headliner!

Grab the smelling salts.

After a brief, semi-indoors move away from its established home, NYC Pride's famous Dance on the Pier event returns outdoors to Pier 26 with... Cher! That's right, the gay icon is set to headline the crown jewel of NYC Pride when she performs her new single "Woman's World" along with a few other songs at this year's main event. 

"NYC Pride is thrilled to welcome Cher to the stage of this year's Dance on the Pier! Her performance will be one of the most memorable in the history of this world-class party. Now in its 27th year, the Dance on the Pier continues a proud tradition of partnering with all-star talent to create a high-quality event that raises funds to support local LGBT non-profits and New York City's  annual Pride festivities," said Chris Frederick, NYC Pride managing director, in the press release announcing the surprise headliner. 

Deborah Cox was announced as a performer on Monday and now THIS! 

The Dance on the Pier takes place on Sunday, June 30. For more info, visit nycpride.org
