Zines!

A zine is a great way to lift of up your voice by creating a small book on whatever you want. Zines are self-published and handmade books. Zines can be created to provide information on a topic, to express yourself and your feelings, and they can be used to show off your artistic talent. Feel free to

 bring your own items to collage into your zine, we will be providing the space, scissors and other craft supplies. The series will take place on

The Hudson Valley Pride Coalition March & Festival

The Hudson Valley Pride March and Festival is back!!! With LGBTQ+ rights under attack, and trans life in particular in imminent danger on the national level, it’s more imperative than ever we come together this Pride Month – what better place to do so than where same-sex marriage was first catapulted into the spotlight and history was made?

Our Center has joined various local organizations, community groups, government entities, elected officials, and individuals to form the 2022 Hudson Valley Pride Coalition.

Join us on Sunday June 5th in New Paltz from 12-5pm to march and celebrate with us!

For more information, to volunteer, be a vendor, or join the coalition, visit: www.hudsonvalleypridecoalition.org/.
