For the month of June, the East River Ferry, in conjunction with local non-profit The Heart Gallery, will become a floating photo gallery to display portraits of local LGBTQ foster children in need of permanent homes.  Curation of the exhibit was completed with help from DUMBO-based United Photo Industries (UPI), with whom the East River Ferry has worked with for the last three years to find local, national, and international photography compilations to turn its ferry boats into temporary photography presentations.

The campaign coincides with the East River Ferry’s participation in the first-annual North Brooklyn Pride Festival, which will bring together the local population and businesses of Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick at an all-day event featuring music and activities celebrating diversity while also bringing awareness to LGBTQ youth in need.  The festival kicks off at noon on Saturday, June 20, running until 9 P.M., at N. 11 Street between Wythe and Kent Streets in Williamsburg.
