In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, New York City’s leading gay party producer, Jake Resnicow, is planning the biggest Pride music festival in history.
Taking place during WorldPride on Saturday, June 29, 2019, the We Party PRIDE FESTIVAL Main Event will bring the entire LGBTQ community and its allies under one spectacular roof and on one enormous dance floor at New York’s largest and most prestigious venue, the Jacob Javitz Center.
Located in the heart of Manhattan, the Jacob Javitz Center is a mammoth 1,800,000 square feet, covering the entire city block between 33rd and 34th Streets, 11th and 12th Avenues. It offers, by far, the largest capacity of all Pride venues. Tickets available now at PrideFestival2019.com. “The 50th anniversary of Stonewall will bring millions of people from all over the world to New York this Pride,” explains Jake Resnicow, recently named “Most Influential Person of the Year” by Out Magazine.
“This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate our progress while working towards a better future. It will allow everyone to come together on one dance floor, in the city that started it all.”
The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of LGBTQ community against a police raid that took place June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village. They are widely considered to have sparked the launch of the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States.

All net proceeds will benefit prominent LGBTQ charities, including LifeBeat and the Stonewall Gives Back Initiative. “We are excited to a make this a celebration for the record books,” continues Resnicow. “Prepare to be amazed!”
