Welcome to Fairny.org, the website of Focus on Awareness and Information Resources of New York, Inc. We are a not for profit corporation, and we host the LGBT Booth at the New York State Fair, which is held annually in Syracuse, New York.
We host the educational booth at the New York State Fair to provide information and resources on issues ranging from bullying of LGBT youth, discrimination facing members of the LGBT community in employment, housing and health issues, GENDA, marriage equality and protection of LGBT families.
The Fair is underway, our Booth is one of the busiest in the Center of Progress Building! To find us, look for the large rainbow Celebrate Diversity signs near the center of the building.

As part of our Family and Health Days and Youth Day our primary goal will be to help educate the public on issues facing LGBT youth, including bullying and homelessness.
We believe the best way to overcome these obstacles is to educate the public about the lives of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals and our communities. Transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers, like other communities in our state, are diverse and vibrant groups of people with many different stories and experiences.
