Inside Our First-Ever NYLON Pride Party

Good vibes only

At NYLON, Pride is not just a month-long event. It's a daily celebration of who we are.

This year, we observed Pride month by bringing the inclusivity we champion in our magazine to the PHD Terrace at the Dream Midtown, where everyone was free to be very much themselves. New Amsterdam Vodka's open bar and bottle service had us in a celebratory mood and ready to take the perfect profile picture with Bumble's rainbow-themed photo booth.

Former Ru Paul's Drag Race contestant Shangela made an entrance with her unforgettable rendition of Destiny Child's "Survivor," while our partner Frankie Sharp kept the house tunes booming all night long.

You can check out highlights from the event below. Happy Pride!
