Celebrate Brooklyn kicked off on June 6 with an interfaith service at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Park Slope, followed by four days of events marking the annual celebration of gay life in Brooklyn and honoring the folks who have made significant contributions to the community.
Before anyone breaks out their go-go boots, though, running shoes will be the sensible choice for the 5K run on June 9 that will benefit the Park Slope Geriatric Day Center. If running in the race doesn’t leave you completely spent, try your hand at the day-long Multicultural Festival along Prospect Park West. But the real fun starts at 9 pm when the parade, lead by Council Speaker Christine Quinn, kicks off at 15th Street and Prospect Park West. The colorful floats and fellas in frocks will then head up Seventh Avenue to Flatbush Avenue — and even feature Brooklyn Beep (pictured) in his Pridemobile with the flashing lights spelling out “M-A-R-T-Y.”
“Brooklyn Pride” runs June 6 to 9. For a complete calendar of events, visit www.brooklynpride.org.
