Westchester Pride at Playland

9/10 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$5 – $25

The Westchester Pride Coalition announced today that Westchester County’s third annual LGBT Pride celebration will take place at Rye Playland on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 12:00 to 8:00 pm. This will be the third year for the county’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered residents to gather to enjoy a fun-filled, family-friendly day. Attendees are encouraged to wear red shirts to show unity and pride.

The event is organized by a coalition of thirteen not-for-profit agencies serving the LGBT community known as the Westchester Pride Coalition (WPC). More than 350 residents turned out for similar Pride events in 2009 and 2010. Guests do not have to identify as LGBT in order to attend; many “straight” allies are expected to attend as well.

The event is staged months after New York State passed a landmark marriage equality bill legalizing same-sex marriage. A celebration of the historic bill will be held at #:00 pm at the Pride Pavilion, headquarters within the Playland park for the festivities.

Westchester Pride at Playland also features vendors, a health fair, and live entertainment featuring Cheer NY, an LGBT cheerleading squad, the Rhythm Knights dance troupe, a drumming circle and music by Minx & Gracie.

The event is open to the public with admission to Playland. Discounted advance tickets can be purchased at www.westchesterpride.org.
