AceShowbiz - Madonna stunned fans at The Standard Hotel's Boom Boom Room in New York on Thursday night (24Jun21) by performing on the bar.
Wearing a blue wig, red elbow-length gloves and a revealing black leather and lace outfit that left her breasts exposed, Madonna told the thrilled clubbers, "To not celebrate pride without people would have been a tragedy for me..."
"Take nothing for granted because you never know what's waiting for all of us around the corner. Learn to love yourself."
Madonna and Quinto auctioned off Polaroids for two LGBTQ support groups - the Ali Forney Center and the Haus of US - and then each pledged a personal donation of $25,000 (£18,000).
"Tonight is not just a party to kick off Pride Weekend," the Material Girl wrote on her Instagram hours before the bash. "At 10p and Midnight in Times Square you can watch a special video made By ME! Don't miss it! Lets POP the cherry on Pride With a Bang!"
As she reminded her followers about the Polaroid auction, she added, "We are here to celebrate our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters, support some amazing Queer initiatives, declare Pride NY weekend open and the return of NYC."
