Tony Awards 2019: Pays tribute to the LGBTQ community

The prestigious 73rd Annual Tony Awards were held on June 9th at the Radio City Music Hall, New York. This year, apart from the glitz and glam, what stole the limelight was the celebration of pride of the LGBTQ community on the red carpet.

At this year’s grand celebration, the red carpet was way more colourful than usual; the walls are designed in lovely rainbow colours, to pay homage to the LGBTQ community. Each year, the red carpet was designed with floral prints and bright colours. But this time, Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue and Journalist decided to do something different. Anna joined the team of Tony Awards a couple of years back to help them make this event a grand success. For the 73rd Annual Tony Awards, Anna chose the famous event designing firm, Raul Avila Inc. to decorate the red carpet according to the theme, which is celebrating the life of LGBTQ community. 

The event design company took to its instagram account and shared a picture of the red carpet with a caption, "The 2019 Tony Awards have begun and we are so Proud! This rainbow-hued red Capet is in honor of World Pride, hosted this year by New York City in conjunction with NYC Pride. Thank you @passionroses for all the beautiful roses. Dećor | Production by Raúl Àvila Inc. @thetonyawards @voguemagazine #raulretail".
