The LGBT Community Center, in partnership with the High Line, is proud to present “Visions of Pride: Paris is Still Burning,” a photography installation in the High Line’s 14th Street Passage. This installation depicts the multifaceted nature of ballroom culture in New York City and nationwide through the lenses of photographers Anja Matthes, Damien Armstrong, and William Isaac Lockhart. These artists’ compelling, intimate photos provide an up-close look at the grandeur of the ballroom community and the stories of its members.Learn more

About The LGBT Community Center
Established in 1983 as a result of the AIDS crisis, New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center has grown and evolved over the last four decades, creating and delivering services that empower people to lead healthy, successful lives. The Center continues to serve the LGBTQ+ community through virtual support services, launched almost immediately after our building closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer a wide range of services including virtual one-on-one counseling; substance use treatment and support groups; virtual youth drop-in space; online arts and culture programming; health insurance navigation; and a virtual “front desk” open five days a week to respond to community inquiries. To learn more about how The Center is serving the community during this time, please visit gaycenter.org.
High Line Programs and accessibility are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Council, under the leadership of Speaker Corey Johnson.
Major support for High Line Community Engagement Programs is provided by Denise Littlefield Sobel, and Sarah Min and Matt Pincus.
