Dragonette Talks NYC Pride & Finding a 'Beautiful Home' With the LGBTQ Community

Band frontwoman and NYC Pride first-timer Martina Sorbara tells Fuse all about the crowd's infectious energy toward love and inclusiveness

Veteran electro-synthpop trio Dragonette recently shook up NYC Pride with performances all around the city, and frontwoman Martina Sorbara was eager to express her commitment to standing by the LGBTQ community. As part of Fuse's Pride Month celebration, the singer-songwriter talked parade vibes and receiving support from LGBTQ fans.

"Since we started the band, we've just found a really beautiful home with the LGBT community," she says. "We love getting involved with Pride...We'd never done anything for Pride in New York."

Sorbara explained that while the parade gig had been exhausting, the crowd's energy toward "love and inclusiveness" blew her away. "It was so beautiful. It kind of felt like a culmination of a long relationship we've had with the LGBT community."
