Comic Relief is excited to announce the launch of an exclusive Pride prize draw which will see one lucky winner win an amazing trip to New York City for Pride 2022 in June 2022, including flights, hotel, and airport transfers.

Not only will the winner get to join Pride celebrations in the Big Apple, they will also be helping to raise money to support vulnerable members of the LGBTQ+ community with Comic Relief.

The trip for two will include return flights to New York and a 4-night stay in the beautiful NoMo SoHo 4* hotel, both courtesy of British Airways Holidays, and airport transfers on both sides, meaning they’ll be traveling to New York in style to take in the world-famous New York Pride March.

During their stay, the winners will be able to take in all the iconic experiences New York has to offer, such as The Stonewall Inn, the home of the Stonewall Uprising which took place on 28th June 1969, a night which electrified the push for LGBTQ+ equality.

When entering the prize draw – which closes on 26th September 2021 – entrants will also have the chance to give a £10 voluntary donation which will fund essential projects that support vulnerable LGBTQ+ people in the UK and across the world.
