Pride Week is upon us and New York City is abuzz with celebrations of Pride all around the city. Last night, Kiehl’s NYC kicked off pride with a bang. Kiehl’s is an official sponsor of NYC Pride and goes above and beyond to support a variety of events and organizations. One of those organizations is the Hetrick-Martin Institute.
The Hetrick-Martin Institute is a great organization that provides a variety of services to LGBTQ youth between the ages of 13 and 24. Kiehl’s presented a check to the Hetrick-Martin Institute to help continue their efforts in promoting youth services and creating programs that can be used by other groups to help promote healthy youth development.
There were a host of invited guests on hand to help celebrate the occasion including Jackie Cruz from Orange Is The New Black. The Misshapes provided some of the sounds and there was a special DJ set by Solange Knowles. Solange came in and turnt the Kiehl’s Flagship store all the way up as she blessed the party with an hour long set. Last night was a great time as usual and it is just a small taste of what’s to come for the weekend, leading up to the Pride Parade.
