Hudson Valley Pride 2019

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019

This year’s Hudson Valley Pride March & Festival will take place on June 2nd, 2019 in New Paltz, NY.

JOIN US!

During the month of June the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center hosts over a dozen events and activities in honor and celebration of Pride Month and there are plenty of ways to get involved. See below for other Pride Month events.

PRIDE MARCH AND FESTIVAL

In February of 2004 the same-sex weddings performed by then New Paltz Mayor Jason West and local clergy pushed the lesbian gay bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community to the forefront in New York and across the nation. Those weddings led to the first New Paltz Pride March & Festival held in June 2005 which in turn led to the formation of the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center. The Pride March & Festival has continued to grow ever since.

PRIDE EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

During the month of June the Center hosts over a dozen events and activities in honor and celebration of Pride Month. Check out the Pride Guide in May to get a full listing and description of all events, plus more information about marshals, sponsors, and elected officials.
