Prior to her performance, Honey Dijon, Misshapes, Kaytranada, and Eli Escobar all played music.

Splashed across screens inside the Boom Boom Room was a video installation that was a collaboration between Madonna, Ricardo Gomes, and Sasha Kasiuha. Titled “No fear, Courage, Resist,” the video was also played on video screens in Times Square.

During the event, Madonna performed “Hung Up” and “I Don’t Search I Find,” while standing on the lounge’s bar.

“To not celebrate pride without people would have been a tragedy for me,” she said during the performance. “Take nothing for granted because you never know what’s waiting for all of us around the corner.”

After the performance, Zachary Quinto helped to auction off three polaroids of Madonna. By the end of the night, the event had raised $100,000 for the Ali Forney Center and Haus of US.
