What is Pink Flamingo?
Pink Flamingo has became an aquatics tradition in the LGBTQ+ inclusive athletic community since the first Gay Games in 1982. It is a combination of cosplay, pride parade, and aquatics athleticism that is the showcase of every International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics Championships (IGLA). For IGLA 2019, we want to show the world just how much pride TNYA has for the legacy of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, and how honored we are that WorldPride is bringing people from all over the world to celebrate this anniversary with us.
Our very own wonderfully talented Andrew Anson is leading TNYA Pink Flamingo this year. The theme for our Pink Flamingo this year will be “MARVELous: A Stonewall Tribute,” a telling of the story of Stonewall portraying our community as superheros (and SHEros). Andy kicked off TNYA March Madness on Tuesday, March 19 to recruit teammates to sign-up to participate in our Pink Flamingo at IGLA 2019. While everyone else was watching NCAA basketball tournament, our team voted on the “Pink Flamingo Palooza and March Madness” Facebook event page wall for our favorite MARVEL character cosplay worn by our very own teammates and coaches. The first group practice for TNYA Pink Flamingo (Pink Flamingo Palooza!) was held at Baruch College on Saturday, April 27. Two more dress rehearsals were scheduled for June 9 @ 3pm @ Sacred Heart, and June 15 @ 3pm @ Sacred Heart. To sign up for the dress rehearsals Pink Flamingo, use the Facebook event page!
