As the economic and cultural heart of Turkey, Istanbul is the world’s tenth most popular destination. A center of arts and fashion, culture and history, with a median age of 23, Istanbul is also a university town with more than 150,000 students.
With a population of more than 13 million, the city of Istanbul, Turkey’s largest, is almost twice as populated as New York, with an area nearly seven times as large as all five New York City boroughs.
The theme for this year's Pride Pier Dance is "Complete the Dream." A fantastic time was had by all, with DJ's The Cube Guys from Italy, Wayne G from the UK and Ralphie Rosario from Chicago, along with a fantastic performance from Ariana Grande.
