Launch Events

Hamptons Pride Launch Events ~ Sunday, September 12, 2021

Tea-Dance Launch Party at Wainscott Green, 3pm – 7pm

A limited, ticketed outdoor event with Karin Ward spinning right over the spot deejays spun a generation ago at The Swamp. The dream launch we hoped for. Sold out.


After-party in the main bar of The Clubhouse, 9pm – 12am 

A ticketed indoor event near the East Hampton airport. Anthony Lee (D/JWatts) spinning, with Naomi the Crown Jewel of the Hamptons performing. Cash bar.


Ticket sales for both events benefited a 100% volunteer non-profit, the first-ever Hamptons organization devoted exclusively to pride. All money raised stays here for activities and programs for East End LGBTQ+ people and their allies. And we hope that means everyone. Follow the Hamptons Pride Fb page for updates and links. And please note, attendance at both events will require proof of vaccination or a recent negative covid test.


Hamptons Pride, Inc. is a not-for-profit public charity (tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code – EIN 86-3600121) that celebrates and commemorates the LGBTQ+ populations on the East End of Long Island. Established by locals for the benefit of locals, the organization’s founding goal is the creation of an historical marker and outdoor social area on the footprint of The Swamp (the last and longest-running gay club in the Hamptons) in what is now Wainscott Green, a park in the Town of East Hampton. Hamptons Pride’s many services are made possible by the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations. Please join us, with your participation and support, as we create a beautiful new gathering space, new social outlets, and a new voice for East End LGBTQ+ people and their allies!
