NEW YORK - New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced that City Hall and other municipal buildings will be lit in rainbow colors tonight to honor the start of Pride Month. In addition, City Hall will fly the Pride flag, the Philly Pride flag, and the Transgender flag on the portico throughout the month of June to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in New York and across the country.
