No One Does Pride Quite Like Madonna

Wherever Madonna goes, the party follows.

The superstar has been a steadfast supporter of her LGBTQ+ fans throughout her almost four-decade career, and embracing the community was at the core of her pre-Pride celebration at Terminal 5 in New York City last week. Madonna enlisted the likes of Saucy Santana and Dominican rapper Tokischa for a wild event that also marked the abridged release of the singer’s upcoming remix album, Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones.

“The LGBTQ+ community has always been hugely supportive of me since day one when I first moved to New York City as a dancer before I started my singing career,” Madonna exclusively tells BAZAAR.com. “Then after I became a singer, the queer community always came out for me, supported me, and they did not judge me—they celebrated me! And they have never been afraid of the fact that I’m a strong, independent female. They showed up for me, and I will always show up for them!”

Photos: Inside Madonna’s Exclusive Pride Concert Event

On the night of June 23, Madonna, who is known for her Pride Month activations and championing LGBTQ rights throughout her career, once again outdid herself with an LGBTQ celebration at Terminal 5 in New York. The show was also in celebration of FINALLY ENOUGH LOVE, Madonna’s 16-track career-spanning remix compilation album, released on streaming today.

Madonna was joined by renowned drag queens Violet Chachki, Bob the Drag Queen, Pixie Aventura, and Laganja Estranja who arrived at the event on the Gaultier double-decker Pride bus.

Bob the Drag Queen served as MC of the show, with tongue-in-cheek skits featuring audio soundbites of Madonna supporting the LBGTQ community throughout the years. Laganja performed an epic rendition of “Vogue,” where she was joined by Jose Xtravaganza, one of Madonna’s dancers on the Blond Ambition tour. Saucy Santana fired up the audience with a performance of his hit song “Walk.”

With LGBTQ+ Rights Under Threat, Madonna Creates A Safe Space

Though I’m only 24 years old, if I’m being honest, there are very few reasons I would leave my apartment after 10 P.M. on a work night. A lover? Probably not. A slice of New York City pizza? Maybe. Secret Madonna performance for Pride Month? C’mon, sign me up!

So when a co-worker slid into my DMs and offered me a ticket in her stead, I was physically unable to turn it down. Right then and there, I slid on my best club-approved black T-shirt, wiggled into some printed pants, grabbed my roommate, and headed to Terminal 5, the perfect venue in Midtown Manhattan for an NYC Pride Week treat.

Madonna sends fans wild as she shares passionate kiss with rapper Tokischa during risqué performance in NYC

Madonna is no stranger to a risqué performance, or even an on-stage kiss – who could forget that iconic moment with Britney Spears at the 2003 VMAs?

And it seems like she doesn’t plan on slowing down with her racy antics, as the pop star shared a passionate snog with rapper Tokischa on stage in New York City.

Madonna, 63, was joined by Tokischa, 26, for a performance of her hit Hung Up, with the pair going in for a rather intense kiss at the end, before Madonna slapped Tokischa’s bum as she walked off the stage.

As to be expected, the crowd went wild when the heavy kiss happened, with the ladies physically unable to get any closer as they grabbed onto one another

Madonna Makes Out With Tokischa During NYC Pride Week

Longtime LGBTQ ally and honorary gay Madonna, whose Finally Enough Love remix album just dropped, celebrated New York Pride at Terminal 5 on Thursday (June 23) night at World of Women’s NFT.NYC event. Not only did the pop icon – who has recently ventured into the NFT space, covering Billboard’s World of Women NFT magazine cover – bring out a gaggle of top-tier drag queens for her NYC Pride celebration, but she tapped iconoclasts in the making such as Tokischa and Saucy Santana to help celebrate a month that separates the dilettantes from the true blues.

Madonna performed the second and final night of two shows in Barcelona during The MDNA Tour on this day ten years ago! In the sizzling hot Palau St. Jordi Madonna took to the stage at 22.15 (which at the time we thought was late…) and gave another flawless performance. 

Madonna acknowledged her fans saying “without you, I’m nothing” and Madonna’s son Rocco (who was part of the show as a dancer) was a huge hit with the crowd.
