Held on June 30, the ceremony featured a roster of musicians who represent the LGBTQIA+ community, including Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, Melissa Etheridge. The producers—Ideko, NYC Pride, and the WorldPride Organization—wanted an electric feeling of joy and excitement. Live Design chats with Weston G. Wetzel, associate lighting designer at design one lighting design on how the lighting reflected that sense of excitement on this historic occasion.
