8. WQXR Presents: The Opera Party: Pride Without Prejudice

On Thursday, June 22, the classical music radio station WQXR will be hosting a new installation of “The Opera Party: Pride Without Prejudice,” an event that is part-party, part-cooking-show, part-opera, and all celebration in honor of Pride. This event, with a conglomeration of events so multifaceted that it glitters, is part of a new opera-party series in the Greene Space in Greenwich Village, Manhattan that fuses social gatherings with classical music.

The “Pride Without Prejudice” edition of The Opera Party will feature delicious eats and festive gallivanting alongside acts by artists including the performance artist and author Justin Vivian Bond, tenor Anthony Dean Griffey and a host of others. To ice it all off, baker Elizabeth Homes will be creating a cake in real time inspired by the music.
