I Appolonia Cruz have been keeping "Bronx Pride Festival" Crotona Park in July alive since 2012 after its previous organizers Bronx Community Pride Center (BCPC) closed. Before BCPC closed, I served as their festival co-host for over eight years where the festival was originally held at "Barretto Point Park" then at "Crotona Park" until Bronx Community Pride Center closed their doors forever in 2012.

After BCPC shut their doors, We gathered with a small group of community members who shared the same passion as I, to keep Bronx Pride alive and in July. We planned Bronx Pride 2012 Festival within two weeks. I have continued to produce Bronx Pride Festival in July at Crotona Park regardless and without financial support, backing, or funding from any Bronx Political Leaders or any major LGBTQIS organizations.

Monies raised from this gofundme page will go directly to cover costs and expenses to make the 8th Annual Bronx Pride 2019 Festival July Crotona Park Amphitheater on Saturday, July 13th, 2019 possible. The funds raised will cover our DJs as well as three festival emcees, truck rental, and much needed new tents that will be used as dressing rooms to house over fifty-five entertainers, food and beverages for entertainers who donate their time, tables, chairs, fans and mirrors for them to use to get ready for their performances.


Forever Thankful,
Appolonia Cruz
"The Queen Of The Bronx"


P.s. This page will also be used for "Appolonia Cruz 6th Annual Christmas in July" on Sat.July20th at Barretto Point Park. Also known as Bronx Pride July Part 2. Monies donated will be used to produce both FREE community events!
