Stonewall 50 To Snub Greenwich Village: Main Music Event Will Take Place At Javitz Center

For decades the main event of New York City Pride has been its annual dance and music concert usually held in the West Village. But this year Stonewall 50 (aka Heritage of Pride) will be using New York City’s leading gay party producer, Jake Resnicow, to host the annual Pride music festival at the very un-gay Jacob Javitz Convention Center.

Via Press Release:

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 PrideFestival 2019.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.
