Letting Our Pride Flag Fly – Pride 2024


We had an especially colorful and delicious pride this year! Although we celebrate diversity throughout the year, we pull out the stops during the months honoring the various groups.


We kicked off Pride with special request from our team at Trinity, which became the décor across our venues during Pride. Our celebrations included several events across New York including First Saturday at Brooklyn Museum, events at Asia Society, and at Rockefeller University.

Decorating for Pride

by Alexander Belmont, Venue Merchandising Manager

From free gender affirming haircuts for local high school students, to hosting a queer prom each year, Kenya came to me with the desire for Trinity Cafe’s seasonal decor to reflect the dedication Trinity Church Wall Street has towards the LGBTQIA+ community. While putting up the window decor, a repurpose of photo booth props and a large vintage hued rainbow garland, the installation enticed pedestrians to walk up to the window and peek through to discover what was inside a building they had glazed over times before. The rainbow of colors summer succulents come in presented a neat opportunity to create small floral designs representing each individual pride flag to fully encompass inclusivity. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I am proud to be able to work with an organization that is just as excited for pride as I am.

Rockefeller University Pride Celebration

Location: Rockefeller University, New York, NY

Guest Count: 250

Date: June 28, 2024

Event Planner: Jessi Owens, Catering Director, The Rockefeller University

Each year, The Rockefeller University hosts a Pride Celebration for it’s students, faculty and staff. It’s a fun, interactive gathering for all and included a photobooth, a swag station where folks could decorate a hat with Pride-themed and self-identifying pins, a rainbow-themed dessert table, and a drag show hosted by New York’s own Jaclynn Hyde!


Following the fabulous performance, dessert stations of grilled-to-order s’mores and Dippin’ Dots Ice Cream remained open as guests danced the night away to the beats of Rockefeller University’s own DJ Marlin.


Special thanks to Broadway Party Rentals who custom made the buffet screens that were thoughtfully designed to reflect the Pride flag.

It was a fun, festive, and colorful event!
