NYC Juneteenth Events To Attend

June 19, 2024

Happy Juneteenth!

Happy Juneteenth! June 19th is the day we celebrate the ending of slavery in the United States. Even though the the Emancipation Proclamation was signed on January 1st, 1863, the news did not reach the last group of enslaved Black people in the southern U.S. until two years later. Every year, we observe Juneteenth on June 19 to memorialize that specific day in Galveston in 1865 that the last group of enslaved people learned of their freedom. Juneteenth is both a celebration of Black independence and a reminder of America’s painful foundation. Here are 5 events to attend in NYC to celebrate and commemorate Juneteenth. And if you are not Black and have the day off, please consider donating your paid time to the organizations producing these events, and/or check out this list of charities to support today.

RADICAL: BLACK QUEER PLEASURE is a Juneteenth celebration showcasing all Black queer burlesque artists performing their most pleasurable acts. These performances, filled with smiles, laughter, moans, and shouts, will bring audiences to their knees, leaving them flabbergasted, bewildered, sweating, and begging for more. Expect to see performers at their most embodied, exploring what it truly means to feel good. Everyone is invited to join us in this celebration of pleasure. This production is supported in part by Indie Space’s Pay Your People Grant and is part of FRIGID New York’s 2024 Queerly Festival, FRIGID’s annual celebration of artistic and LGBTQIA2S+ expression.
