It's Pride month during June in New York City and artists in the dance music community are lending their talent to benefit the gay-straight alliance, Swish, for an evening of unforgettable house music and creative energy.
Swish is a non profit organization that has been educating and involving the straight community in the LGBT movement for 8 years. Always a presence, and 3 time award winner, in the NYC Pride March, on the last Sunday of June, Swish's membership has doubled in just the past 5 months to almost 3000 and looks to have its largest marching contingent of straight allies demanding equality for all citizens.
Learn more about Swish and its advocacy work and how you can get involved in the LGBT rights movement with a fun and inclusive organization. www.swishpride.org
