Mx. Justin Vivian Bond Accepts Queerty's Pride50 Catalyst Award

Pride is in the air in New York City, and Queerty kicked things off on Friday with an unforgettable evening at Current in Chelsea, celebrating this year’s Pride50 honorees. Queerty’s Dan Tracer played host for the evening, presenting performer and activist Mx. Justin Vivian Bond with this year’s Pride50 Catalyst Award. “Over the course of my 30-some years as a performer, strictly for the queer community, I’ve actually been able to be given a place in a larger community, and seen how queer art and queer performers are now everywhere,” said Bond. “The queens are not backing down.”
