Freedom Party NYC is the final event in Rainbow Railroad’s Global Freedom Series, sponsored by The Points Guy, following incredibly successful events in London and Toronto earlier this Spring. So far the series has raised more than $600,000 for Rainbow Railroad’s mission to provide life-saving support to LGBTQI+ people escaping violence and persecution.

The series is a celebration of LGBTQI+ freedom: the freedom to express oneself, the freedom to live openly and without fear, and most importantly, the freedom from persecution and violence for LGBTQI+ people seeking safety around the world.

Featuring performances from not one but TWO RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni, ballroom and vogue performers from New York, and a special surprise musical guest… stay tuned!

The Freedom Party NYC is taking place at the Hudson Mercantile, a distinctive event space in mid-Manhattan that will provide an unforgettable and unparalleled experience over multiple levels with the iconic Hudson Yards serving as a backdrop.

Presented in partnership with renowned interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg, the Freedom Party NYC will push boundaries and perspectives, giving attendees an opportunity to hear compelling stories from LGBTQI+ people who have escaped persecution and violence from around the world, while celebrating Rainbow Railroad’s work and impact.

The Freedom Party NYC will bring together Rainbow Railroad’s supporters, community leaders and LGBTQI icons and influencers for an evening of cocktails, canapés and entertainment from the queer cultural scene of dance, drag, art, design and fashion, with exclusive musical guests and more than a few surprises.

This event is a unique, must-attend opportunity to celebrate and help make a real difference in improving the safety and well-being of vulnerable LGBTQI+ individuals globally.
