THUMP is excited to announce that we're throwing a Pride closing party fundraiser with our friends from Output in Brooklyn for the victims of the Orlando shooting on Monday June 27, from 5-10 PM.
The DJs playing the party are Pulse's own residents. DJ Infinite, DJ Flawless, and DJ Simon were all playing when the shooting happened, but now they're coming up to New York to show us how Orlando gets a party going. Opening from 5-6PM is NYC-based DJ Michael Magnan—a fixture in the local nightlife scene, and a resident at two of New York's best gay parties, Ladyfag's 11:11 and Holy Mountain. It couldn't be a more fitting way to close out Pride weekend—and our weekend-long series exploring the intersection of LGBTQ culture and nightlife.
So join us on Output's gorgeous roof deck on Monday night with its views over the East River while Pulse's DJs soundtrack the sunset. Entry is $10—or a donation of your choice—at the door; all proceeds from the event will go to Equality Florida's campaign to support the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando. Even though over six million dollars has already been raised, the organization still needs help meeting their fundraising goal. Equality Florida is working directly with the National Center for Victims of Crime to distribute the contributions to victims of the Orlando attack via their National Compassion Fund.
For those that can't be there, we've got you covered—we're livestreaming the whole event on Facebook Live. Wherever you are in the world, you can still help the victims by supporting Equality Florida's GoFundMe campaign.
