LGBT Pride in Queens

On Sunday, June 1, Pride Agenda staff and supporters took to the streets of Jackson Heights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride in Queens. Our group marched down 37th Avenue with Assemblymember (and this year’s Queens Pride Parade Grand Marshal) Jose Peralta, City Council Member David Yassky, and City Council Member John Liu.

The Queens Pride Parade offered an occasion to show our appreciation for Gov. Paterson and his committment to equal rights for all New Yorkers.

Members of Pride Agenda's Offsprung! group joined the march.

Supporters held placards that raised awareness for the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) and the Dignity for All Student Act prohibiting bullying against youth in our public schools.

Thanks to everyone who joined the Pride Agenda at the LGBT Pride Parade in Queens!
