Long Island Pride Weekend

Long Island Pride weekend was a blast! Thank you to all who stopped by our booth and took the time to learn about the services offered at HFY! Long Island Pride moved to Long Beach, NY, for a three-day destination weekend, which included the 27th Annual Long Island Pride Parade!

“The Long Island Pride Weekend is a great opportunity for families all across Long Island to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community that has contributed so much to make Long Island such a great place to live,” said City Council Vice President Anthony Eramo. “For over a quarter century, Long Island Pride has been bringing people together from all over Nassau and Suffolk Counties.”

Long Island Pride is produced by the LGBT Network

The LGBT Network is an association of non-profit organizations working to serve the LGBT community of Long Island and Queens throughout the lifespan: Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY), The Long Island LGBT Community Center (The Center), Services and Advocacy for LGBT Elders – Long Island (SAGE-LI), and the Queens LGBT Community Center (Q Center). Together, each organization works within The Network to end homophobia and transphobia, to provide a home and safe space for the LGBT community, and to advocate for equality. Since 2012, The Network also produces the annual Pride Parade and PrideFest celebration every June and Living Out magazine each month. Both Pride and Living Out build community and celebrate our identities while also providing visibility to our movement. See more at LGBTnetwork.org.
