From June 15-June 30, The Ally Coalition, in collaboration with GLAAD and powered by Microsoft, is popping up in New York City’s Soho neighborhood at 568 Broadway, at Broadway and Prince Street. Together, we invite you to experience Feel The Pride, a community-powered light instillation with a soundscape by St. Vincent—and you.
“We’re so thrilled that with the help of Microsoft, St. Vincent and organizations like GLAAD, we’ll be able to experience what pride means in a whole new way while honoring the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.”
– Jack and Rachel Antonoff
What does courage look like? What does love sound like?
At Feel The Pride, Microsoft AI technology will analyze your words for sentiment and convert them into a unique color and loop of music by St. Vincent based on the emotion behind your message.
These messages make up the dynamic tapestry of light and music that unfolds within the installation. Bask in the sights and sound of Pride and the collective messages of joy, hope, and empowerment that surround you. End the journey at the GLAAD action wall, where you can sign up to take a stand for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Not able to make it? Share what Pride means to you on Twitter with the hashtag #FeelThePride and your words will come to life in the installation. Let your voice be heard.

nyc pride march
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and celebrating WorldPride in NYC, The Ally Coalition and Bombas would like to invite you to join us in the World Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30th.
LGBTQIA+ youth represent 40% of the total youth population across the US experiencing homelessness. The Ally Coalition and Bombas will be marching to raise awareness around this disproportionate number.
To join us in the parade, please complete the sign-up form here.
All participants will receive special edition Bombas Pride socks and a t-shirt.
Until June 30th, Bombas will donate 40% of all donation socks (up to 1 million pairs) to organizations that serve the needs of LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing homelessness.
Help us in the fight for equality for LGBTQ youth. Your support goes directly to LGBTQ organizations directly serving youth in their communities.
