This year, by illuminating the façade of the Metropolitan Opera house each night in the rainbow colors during PRIDE MONTH (June)
Last year, two opera stars, STEPHANIE BLYTHE and ANTHONY ROTH COSTANZO joined more than lOO MET employees participating in the NYC PRIDE MARCH, so for the first time in its history, the MET took to the streets for the annual LGBTQ Pride march.

"This year," writes the Metropolitan Opera in their e-mail "while the ongoing health crisis has forced NEW YORK CITY to cancel this year's official LGBTQ festivities, we're excited to share, (with your readers) some virtual PRIDE celebrations in the video below, and we've got some other virtual PRIDE surprises for later this week.--STAY TUNED."
