Good vibes only

At NYLON, Pride is not just a month-long event. It's a daily celebration of who we are.

This year, we observed Pride month by bringing the inclusivity we champion in our magazine to the PHD Terrace at the Dream Midtown, where everyone was free to be very much themselves. New Amsterdam Vodka's open bar and bottle service had us in a celebratory mood and ready to take the perfect profile picture with Bumble's rainbow-themed photo booth.

Former Ru Paul's Drag Race contestant Shangela made an entrance with her unforgettable rendition of Destiny Child's "Survivor," while our partner Frankie Sharp kept the house tunes booming all night long.

You can check out highlights from the event below. Happy Pride!

We also got some validation on that Princess title

On Sunday evening, the Queen of the United States met the first Black Princess. Neither of these titles is technically correct, but when it comes to Beyoncé and Meghan Markle, I said what I said.

Twitter is already obsessed

Captain Marvel actress Lashana Lynch has been cast as the newest 007 agent, according to a report from The Daily Mail. If it's true, it'll be the first time that a white man won't play the main character in the film franchise's history. Twitter is celebrating the casting as a huge step forward, and we totally agree.
