BROOKLYN — For Pride’s biggest weekend, most parties — including the Pride Parade — will happen in Manhattan.

But if you want to show your colors again before June’s over — and avoid Manhattan's crowds — you’ve still got a lot of options to live it up in Brooklyn.

Head to these eight events and parties planned in the borough this weekend:

Saturday, June 25

Full Spectrum Pride

Where: Secret Project Robot Art Space, 389 Melrose St., Bushwick
When: 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Dance the day away at this afternoon dance party hosted by The Spectrum, an art space for queer artists, at the Secret Project Robot gallery. Seven DJs are lined up to play. Tickets are $5 before 5 p.m., $10 before 7 p.m. and a “sliding scale” between $15 and $25 after 7 p.m., organizers said.


Where: Wythe Hotel, 80 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg
When: 6 p.m. to midnight

This free rooftop party is sponsored by Posture Magazine, a digital and biannual print magazine dedicated to the “creative exploration of identity.” Entry to the event is first come, first serve, organizers said.

Trans Theatre Festival Closing Party

Where: The Brick, 579 Metropolitan Ave., Williamsburg
When: 8 p.m.

Celebrate the closing of the month-long Trans Theatre Festival at The Brick with this free party at the Williamsburg theater space, including two live music performances.

Everybooty at BAM

Where: BAM Fisher, 321 Ashland Pl., Fort Greene
When: 9 p.m.

It’ll cost you to get into this multi-level art party extravaganza: the $20 advance tickets have already sold out, so you’ll have to spend $75 for BAM’s pre-party “rooftop social” or wait by the door for a $25 day-of ticket, as space allows. But it might be worth it; the event will include, multiple DJ sets, live performances, installations, readings, booze and “general ruckus,” organizers said.

Bad Habit Pride

Where: Lot 45, 411 Troutman St., Bushwick
When: 10 p.m.

Let loose at the “official NYC Dyke March after-party” hosted by Hot Rabbit with vogue, hip-hop and dance performances, multiple DJ sets and drink specials. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the doors.

Papi Juice Anniversary Party

Where: Baby’s All Right, 146 Broadway, Williamsburg
When: 10 p.m.

Have a blast at the third anniversary party of “Papi Juice,” a dance party celebrating “queer and trans people of color and the folk who love them,” organizers say. Tickets are $12 at the door.

The Bunker Pride at Output

Where: Output, 74 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg
When: 10 p.m.

Come for the music at this all-night event hosted by longtime expert party-throwers from The Bunker, a twice-monthly dance party. Seven DJs are lined up to play in the club’s two dance halls. Advance tickets cost $22.50 online.

Sunday, June 26

Pride at Littlefield

Where: Littlefield, 622 Degraw St., Gowanus
When: Doors at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.

Come out to hear some great comedians — including Ilana Glazer of "Broad City" — for this benefit comedy show. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit “Everytown for Gun Safety” and “Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity,” the club said and Littlefield will match all funds raised from the event.
