worldPride 2019

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.

#feelthepride

“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

Community-Powered Love

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.
