With Pride rolling around this weekend, we couldn’t help but ask the attendees of VH1’s Trailblazer Honors how they plan to celebrate this momentous occasion.
The fact that pride goers are able to celebrate so open and freely without consequence rests on the trailblazers before us that made such liberation possible. We asked the red carpet attendees of the show how they will be spending June 24th.
Queer Eye star Karamo Brown will be celebrating with his two sons, whom identify as straight but are supportive allies to the LGBTQ community. After that, he says, “I like a cocktail.” I hear that! Actress Sara Ramirez plans to celebrate at as many Pride parties as she can, because it’s tough to sift through all of her invites.
If you happen to be in New York City for Pride, chances are you might catch a glimpse of Pose star Billy Porter. “Somebody asked me to be on a float. I’m on a float with the kids.” For others like, Aquaria of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10, the day will be spent in work mode. “Thankfully, I’ve got a lot more bookings than last year. It’s been really nice being able to travel and celebrate Pride all around the country.”
