Lincoln Center Lights Up Rainbow In Celebration of Pride Month

The Lincoln Center has lit up its fountain and plaza area in rainbow colored lighting - as a public show of support for Pride Month and the LGBTQ+ movement

The Lincoln Center, in New York City, has this week lit up its fountain and plaza area in rainbow colored lighting - as a public show of support for Pride Month and the modern LGBTQ+ movement.

For the first time in its over 60 year history, the light installation, between now and the end of June, will illuminate the homes of the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera and New York City Ballet from dusk to dawn in a giant Pride flag.

"For the rest of June, these activations acknowledge the histories, struggles, and contributions of LGBTQIA+ communities, and celebrate the full spectrum of queer identity," a spokesperson for Lincoln Center has today said.

The light demonstration comes as New Yorkers find new ways to celebrate Pride Month during the coronavirus crisis - which has restricted most in-person events.

Other New York landmarks embracing Pride celebrations this month include: the Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art, WQXR and The Violin Channel.
