More on Lady Gaga Look-Alike Competition & Pride Goes East
One month from tomorrow, on June 4, the Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID) and Fourth Arts Block will officially kickoff the annual Pride Goes East Festival with plenty of music and masquerading. The NYC Gay Pride Month Launch Party will host six musical performers, headlined by neighborhood resident Sir Ari Gold, alongside the rather intriguing Lady Gaga look-alike competition.

The purpose of the Go Gaga Look-Alike Competition is to champion the the Fame Monster’s connection to the LES; she once lived at 176 Stanton Street. Participants are encouraged to incorporate elements of the neighborhood into their costumes, which should also evoke any of her infamous looks. The best impersonator will take home spoils of battle including a night’s stay at the GEM Hotel and dinner for two at Cafe Katja. Readers interested in competing should read the rules and entry instructions below:
In conjunction with the Pride Goes East celebration, 5% of proceeds from BID-businesses will be donated to a host of LGBT organizations, including Broadway Cares and Harvey Milk School. Customers need only drop off their receipts at the visitor center at 54 Orchard Street.
