Stand with Pride “We’re Here” Rally

January 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

Stand with Pride: ‘We’re Here’ Rally
Sunday, January 15th at 3PM
in front of the Pride Center, 28 S. Franklin Street, Nyack, NY

Why a Rally?
Remember when men jokingly said “no homo” to prevent their kindness from being mistaken for queerness? Wednesday morning, staff discovered someone had graffitied that phrase on the front of the Pride Center.

Incidents of hateful graffiti, threats, and intimidation are rising at LGBTQ+ community centers around the country.

These are the inevitable expression of a political moment charged with violence and hatred of LGBTQ+ people. We’ve already seen what happens when elected officials embolden individuals to take action to “protect children.”

  • We saw it at Club Q in Colorado Springs.
  • We saw it when Boston Children’s Hospital received bomb threats for providing healthcare to LGBTQ+ youth and their families.
  • We see it locally in threats against the Pride Center for working with schools.

No matter what happens: We’re here. We’re queer. Period. Nothing will change the reality that we are your teachers, neighbors, doctors, and pastors. We are your children whether you choose to see us or not.

To hate us is to hate a part of yourself.

See you on Sunday!
