It’s a Pride moment for Dani Toro.

After two years of at-home or hybrid celebrations, New York City is bringing back its in-person Pride Month activities, with the Spanish deejay among the participating artists.

Dani Toro,NYC Pride, the organization responsible for organizing Pride Month festivities in New York, announced this year’s Pride Island, a three-day LGBTQ music festival, will take place June 24-26.

Kim Petras will serve as the official headliner.

“Can’t believe I’m headlining NYC Pride,” Petras tweeted. “The dolls keep winning. See you on June 26th it’s gna be amazingg!”

Along with announcing Petras as their Sunday headliner, NYC Pride also announced that the annual festival would be changing locations. While past iterations of Pride Island took place at Manhattan’s Pier 97, the 2022 festivities will be taking place at the Play Lawn on Governor’s Island.

“With our first ever trans headliner and our move to Governors Island, this will truly be a historic weekend in the history of Pride” Lauren Cheeseborough, Pride Island’s event manager said in a statement. “The expansion of Pride Island to a 3-day event creates new experiences for the community to love and live their truth by dancing freely without fear of consequence.”

In addition to Petras and Toro, NYC Pride announced a number of the other performers set to appear at Pride Island, including Papi Juice, Eddie Martinez and Alex Chapman. Additional performers will be announced closer to the event.

Discounted tickets to Pride Island are available now for Mastercard holders, while general ticket sales will launch on Wednesday, April 6.
