Out for Equality

Please join us this year, as activists from across the state once again gather in Albany on Monday, May 9 for Equality & Justice Day. If we’re going to pass legislation to allow loving, same-sex couples to marry, protect the basic civil rights of transgender New Yorkers, and maintain funding for culturally competent health and human services for LGBT people, it is critical that our legislators hear from constituents who care about equality and justice. Sign up today for our special early bird rate, offered for a limited time only.

This is the largest statewide gathering of LGBT and allied New Yorkers and a unique opportunity to bring the movement together, strengthen our ties and build the coalitions we need to win. It includes a rally, workshops, caucuses and an opportunity to speak directly with your legislator about the issues that matter to our community. Join us and make your voice heard!

After a year of building up our base of support in key areas of the state, we came out of the 2010 elections in a better position than ever before, and ready for a strong showing in Albany. The theme this year is “OUT for Equality.” We need all fair-minded New Yorkers – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender AND our wonderful allies – to come out in support of a better Empire State. Won’t you be part of this powerful day?
