New York City’s vibrant LGBTQAI+ community continues to evolve, celebrating its diversity and resilience through various forms of expression. At the forefront of this cultural tapestry is Prynce Pedro Gonzalez, the visionary founder of The Incomparable Kiki HausofZara, a beacon of love, support, and creativity.

Established on January 28, 2024, The Incomparable Kiki HausofZara is more than just a house; it is a sanctuary where individuals find solace, empowerment, and a sense of belonging. Prynce Pedro, as he is affectionately known, has cultivated a space that transcends traditional boundaries, embracing individuals from all walks of life. “This haus is built on genuine love and support,” Pedro emphasizes, encapsulating the ethos of his creation.

The house’s members don various roles, from stage directors to artists, reflecting the multifaceted nature of its community. Pedro describes his haus as “clean and simple, yet striking,” a testament to its aesthetic allure and profound impact. No matter what, Pedro and his haus members are always uplifted.

Prynce Pedro’s commitment to intergenerational connectivity is exemplified through a partnership with the SAGE Center in the Bronx. The SAGE Center Bronx at Crotona Pride House serves as a safe haven for LGBTQAI+ elders, fostering a sense of community and belonging. Together, they’re spearheading an initiative aimed at bridging generational divides and fostering mutual understanding.

In addition to its community outreach efforts, The Incomparable Kiki HausofZara is poised to make waves in the fashion world. Teaming up with the SAGE Center, they are set to launch a Fashion Lounge series every Wednesday, offering workshops on sewing and other fashion-centric activities. Pedro is open to you voguing while you are at the fashion lounge too, a testament to the inclusivity and creativity that defines their ethos.

As Prynce Pedro continues to chart new territory, his influence reverberates far beyond the confines of his house. Sharing a song by King Father Hermes Zara AKA Zayon Anodomere which features Sinia Alaia, Pedro’s passion for uplifting others shines through. “Anyone who comes to me… their life becomes better,” he affirms, embodying the spirit of compassion and empowerment.

With a background in hospitality and a penchant for leadership, Prynce Pedro is poised to lead by example, inspiring others to embrace their true selves and pursue their passions. “I learned how to sew by myself,” he shares, a testament to his resourcefulness and determination. As he continues to pave the way for future generations, one thing remains certain: the journey of The Incomparable Kiki HausofZara is far from over. Stay tuned for what is to come, as Prynce Pedro and his haus redefine the meaning of community, creativity, and pride.
