Theme for 2017 is "LOVE Is..." 
 Our Mission

The mission of CNY Pride is to serve the Central New York lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies.

Our annual Pride Parade and Festival, along with similar events throughout the year, provides a forum to celebrate and affirm individual sexual and gender identity, to commemorate our community's rich history and diversity, and to renew our dedication to ending intolerance and achieving equal rights.

Our Independence day. A day that many have fought for and worked had for us to be as open and free as we are.
A day with many who came before us were not able to express their personal beliefs,yet stood proud and strong to fight for All Americans. We have many disabled and veterans in our LGBTQ communities that deserve the rights that we have. It's important to remember what a country we live in,generations ago of strong people fighting that freedom we have and will not give up. We will keep fighting for ALL People and Rights of all- Not just some.
