With WorldPride weekend in full effect, fans and artists alike flocked to New York's Pier 97 on Saturday (June 29) to catch the first day of Pride Island, the annual music festival from New York Pride celebrating the community's favorite LGBTQ talent, along with some of our fiercest allies.
The main event on Saturday was supermodel and recording artist Grace Jones, who took to the Pier 97 stage to deliver a stunning performance of some of her greatest dance hits to a crowd of screaming fans. "Aren't we going to church?" she proclaimed at one point. "Isn't this really church?"
Emerging from the back of the stage under the cover of a sheet bearing her face, Jones -- covered in Keith Haring-style body paint and a billowing cape and a golden skull atop her head -- greeted her fans with performances of some of her best work, including "My Jamacain Guy," "Williams Blood" and a show-stopping hula-hooping performance of "Slave to the Rhythm."
