Pride Day celebrates the LGBT community, providing a welcome for all members of our community, our families and allies!  Pride Day is now an officially recognized day at the Fair, with a rainbow flag raising, Information Fair, ceremony and participation in the daily parade. In addition, visitors can come to the LGBTQ Pride Booth on Pride Day and throughout the Fair for free literature and can take their photo at our I Love New York LGBT display, complete with the rainbow heart logo!

We provide information on services, professional resources, and the vast array of programs for the LGBTQ community.  We also foster awareness of issues of concern to the LGBTQ concern, and resources for safe space training. We work to build pride in the LGBTQcommunity, and celebrate the diversity of our community.   We also have free stickers from the HRC, their iconic sticker lets everyone know you support equal rights for all. 

In addition to the resources available at the LGBTQ Pride Booth on Pride Day we will have an table at the Information Fair in the Chevy Court Pavilion, and participate in the Pride Ceremony at the Fair.
