10. EVENT: NYC Black Pride Honors Storme De Larverie
To celebrate its 16th anniversary, New York City Black Pride will honor the life and work of famed drag king and Stonewall veteran Storme De Larverie. The Heritage Award Ceremony will kick off five days of cultural events, toasting De Larverie as well as Broadway legend Andre DeShields, fashion legend Audrey Smaltz, and Olympic medalist Gail Marquis. De Larverie, 93, was the only drag-king in the famed Jewel Box Revue of the '40s, '50s and '60s, known as America's first racially integrated drag show, as well as one of the first documented people to fight back the police during the Stonewall Riots.
