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.

Last year’s Pride March took place on Sunday, June 4, 2017. Despite the threat of rain over 700 community members took over Main Street in New Paltz and marched to Hasbrouck Park for the annual Pride Festival.


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 of activities and events.
