Pride events in NYC: What to do beyond the parade

Pride month goes well beyond the official New York City parade.

While thousands of locals will line up on Fifth Avenue to witness the annual festivities on June 24, there are plenty of other events this month dedicated to celebrating and supporting the LGBTQ community.

From art exhibits to dance parties to performances and other borough-wide parades, here's how to show your pride and celebrate Pride Month in the city:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's weekly event series will celebrate pride the Friday before the NYC Pride March. Details of the event have yet to be announced, but expect dancing, music from local acts -- in past years, performers included the New York City Gay Men's Chorus -- and gallery talks. MetFridays are free with museum admission. (1000 Fifth Ave., Upper East Side, 5 to 9 p.m., $25, metmuseum.org)
