PHOTOS: The Pride & Love party at the Midtown Loft & Terrace became home base and an escape from the rain for many during New York City’s Pride this year.  With DJs Michel Hades, Angel Moraes, and Abe Clements, the children showed up and promptly deathdropped all over the dancefloor downstairs and on the rooftop terrace. Later, we took to Brandon Voss and Patrick Duffy’s party at the Monocle Rooftop, at the McKittrick Hotel (above the hit show, Sleep No More) where Amanda Lepore sipped cocktails and Candis Cayne twirled for friends and fans.  Shortly after Candis bowed and saluted the crowd, Deborah Cox reminded everyone that yes, she is supposed to be here — at the annual Pier Dance. Then, to bring the day and the world to a close, the heavens opened up and Whoopi Goldberg descended to introduce fellow Oscar-winner, the one and only Cher, who held the crowd of shirtless screaming admirers in the palm of her legendary, bejeweled hand.
