Nelly Furtado headlines Sunday finale of NYC's Pride Island

The chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, Nelly Furtado, touches down to close out Sunday’s Pride Island on June 25, 2017. 

Gaining steam in the year 2000 with her debut album, Whoa, Nelly!, the Portuguese-Canadian singer hasn’t slowed down since. Furtado’s spell-bounding solo hits such as “I’m Like a Bird,” “Turn off the Light” and “Say It Right” are impressed in the history of pop music. Her collaborative pop smashes with Timbaland for “Promiscuous” and “Give It to Me” featuring Justin Timberlake, will move the crowd for Sunday’s dynamic closing. 

With a career that spans two decades, five albums under her belt, and more than 16 million records sold worldwide, 

Nelly Furtado is back in the limelight. Her recent studio album, The Ride, is a bold comeback project taking fans along a spectacular ride with her. And that ride is scheduled to make quite a landing at Pride Island. 

“Pride Island was created to celebrate the heart of our community with each day representing a different musical sound,” said Jose Ramos, Pride Island Director. “Nelly Furtado closing out our three-day experience will be one for the record books.” 

Pride Island is a three-day cultural experience featuring vocal powerhouses Deborah Cox and Patti LaBelle on Friday and indie pop duo Tegan and Sara and British electronica trio, Years & Years, on Saturday. Rounding out Saturday, Róisín Murphy, Gallant, Dimitri from Paris, and Occupy The Disco are scheduled to perform. Chus & Ceballos, Cindel, and Scott Martin will join Nelly Furtado for Sunday’s finale. 

Furtado joins a star-studded list of Sunday performers that include Cher, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Ariana Grande. 

Tickets for Pride Island are now on sale. For more information about Pride Island or to purchase tickets, visit: nycpride.org

NYC Pride Unveils 'We Are Proud' Theme

“This year’s theme speaks to the striking nature of the human race to stand in commonality and be accounted for in moments of thrilling victory and tumultuous times,” said Maryanne Roberto Fine, NYC Pride Co-Chair.


NYC Pride is thrilled to announce 2017’s official theme, “We Are Proud.” This year's theme pays honor to our diverse community of LGBT people and the progress made for LGBT rights. “We Are Proud” similarly recognizes the continued battle for freedom and liberty amidst the existing political climate in the United States and abroad.

“We are the ever-evolving LGBTQ community and the tireless work of women and people of color. We are the valiant immigrants and refugees who found places to call home in America and around the globe. We are an undaunted community with disabilities and we are the rising youth and wise elders of yesteryear. We are etched into the very fabric of American history. And we are proud of it,” said Roberto Fine.

The 2017 NYC Pride week will take place from June 16 to June 25. This year’s roster will include the March, Rally, PrideFest, OutCinema, Teaze and a new multi-day cultural experience on Pier 26.

Guidetogay.com is a proud platinum media partner of the 2017 events.
