From a shipwreck tattoo booth, an Andrew Christian swimsuit customization workshop designed by artist Raul de Nieves, or just drinking White Girl Rosè with co-founder and Internet celebrity The Fat Jewish, prideful partygoers found themselves entertained at every corner at Slumbr Camp.
After hours on the pool deck, people were invited to take a break and lounge around the island as the iconic Pavillion was turned into a Summer Camp formal.
That night, guests were surprised by an appearance by Drag Race runner-up Peppermint, who also served a live performance of her original music. And between her sets, there was a special performance by GRAMMY®- winner Macy Gray.
As the party went deep into the night under a field of balloons and disco lights, the legendary DJ Honey Dijon kept the energy high after arriving from a performance in Paris just the night before.
Those who decided to be overnight campers were treated to a recovery brunch poolside the next morning. Items like fresh mints and croissants that help all of us recover from any damage done by drinking too many Absolut and sodas were provided to help bring the weekend to a delicious close.
As people boarded a ferry and then a chartered bus to take them into the city to keep Pride going, many scored gift bags from brands like ASOS and Dollar Shave Club (who ensured that a clean razor was available to freshen up).
While this year’s now infamous annual Pride party was different compared to last year’s at the Standard Hotel, one thing stayed the same: Everyone had an unforgettable time.
