Mayor Adams Announces City Hall to be lit in Rainbow Colors in Honor of Pride Month

June 2, 2022

City Hall Also Flying Pride, Philly Pride, and Transgender Flags on Portico

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced that City Hall will be lit in rainbow colors tonight in honor of the start of Pride Month. In addition, City Hall will fly the Pride flag, the Philly Pride flag, and the Transgender flag on the portico throughout the month of June to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in New York and across the country.

“During Pride Month, we reflect on the enormous strides we have made in securing equal rights for LGBTQ+ New Yorkers — and how far we still have yet to go,” said Mayor Adams. “As the home of Stonewall, we recognize our fraught history, the progress we have made together since 1969, and the work ahead of us to ensure every New Yorker of every identity feels the safety and support of a loving community — including transgender people of color who are disproportionately targeted by senseless hate. New York City will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our LGBTQ+ family, many of whom are proud members of our administration. We are sending a clear message to the rest of the country and the world: No matter how you identify or who you love, our city will always embrace you with open arms.”

In addition to City Hall, the David N. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building and the Spring Street Salt Shed were lit up in rainbow colors to recognize Pride Month last night.
