Getting Ready for a Pride Pep Rally at AOL

Posted: Updated:

Excitement continues to build at AOL headquarters only a week into Pride Month as we prepare for an action-packed Pride Pep Rally and participation in New York City's unparalleled Pride March.

Our two winners to join headquarters staff for Pride Weekend in New York have been chosen by random draw, and we're looking forward to welcoming them here.

Even better, Out at AOL is partnering with AOL's Culture Club to make the Pride Pep Rally on Friday, June 22, an event the entire office can get involved in. With so much to do, we'll be kicking things off a little early on that summer Friday, marking the start of Pride Weekend with performances from America's Best Dance Crew contestants Vogue Evolution, stations for both causes and dressing up to enjoy the fun, and a photo booth to commemorate the day.

Employees will have the chance to mix and mingle with drinks and one very striking drag queen. Pride is about celebration, and the Out at AOL committee has worked to guarantee that everyone in our New York office has a chance to participate in one of the year's biggest parties.

In the meantime, for more resources on the parade and other New York events, see here.
