PRIDE MARCH AND FESTIVAL

This year’s Pride March and Festival took place on Sunday, June 3rd, in New Paltz.

In February of 2004 the same-sex weddings performed by then New Paltz Mayor Jason West 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.
