Out & About in the Community

Pride Parade
Sunday, June 4, starting at noon at Elmwood Avenue & Forest Avenue

The Pride Parade is a time when the LBGTQ community marches together down Elmwood Avenue in celebration of their history and culture, and as a visible representation of the multiple ways there are to be LBGTQ in WNY. With more than 100 organizations participating, it’s a great opportunity to collaborate with another group to create a one-of-a-kind float. Or, watch the floats go by from the sidelines with your friends, family and chosen family for a day of fun you won’t forget.
