NYBG Pride

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 – Thursday, June 30, 2022

Ongoing | Onsite & Online

Join us throughout the month of June as we celebrate the history and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community in the botanical world, with interactive art, interviews with innovators and activists working with plants, and more.

Rooted in Plants

Our Teen Explainers are here to show you a fun activity to express yourself and your identity through making your own flower lapel pins, just like famous playwright Oscar Wilde did by wearing a dyed green carnation on his lapel to symbolize his place in the Gay community.

Plants as Liberation

In this wide-ranging series of interviews with herbalists, houseplant enthusiasts, farmers, and gardeners, hear from Black women in the plant world and learn how they are using plants as a powerful expression of liberation and freedom.

Shades of Lavender

Learn more about lavender—the color symbolic of LGBTQ+ resistance and empowerment—as well as the plant’s associated cultural and horticultural history. Whether the plant or the color, lavender’s rich symbolism and storied history continue to fascinate and engage a wide range of enthusiasts.
