MetroFocus | June 23, 2022

June is Pride Month, and for the first time since 2019, the New York City Pride March is officially back fully in-person, and this year’s theme is “Unapologetically Us.”  The march is just one of many in-person events taking place throughout the city that aims to inspire, educate, commemorate, and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community.  One of the Pride March’s Grand Marshals, television and internet personality, Ts Madison, joins us to discuss the significance of this pride and her personal journey to becoming her unapologetic self.

Hugh Ryan, author of “When Brooklyn was Queer:  A History,” joins us to look at the little-known story of Kings County’s vibrant and forgotten LGBTQIA+ past.
