The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will host the first-of-its-kind event and raise the pride flag on Saturday, June 8 at 11:45 a.m. following the AC Pride’s Third Annual Rainbow Ride & March at 10 a.m., which the casino also sponsors.

The historic commemorative will feature a special guest hailing from Staten Island: three-time Daytime Emmy winner and writer Anthony Wilkinson.

In addition, the resort will host an after party at their new rooftop restaurant called The Terrace, from noon until 2 p.m.
