Stand with Pride: ‘We’re Here’ Rally

When:      Sunday, January 15th at 3PM

Where:     In front of the Pride Center, 28 S. Franklin Street, Nyack, NY

Statement from The Phyllis B. Frank Rockland County Pride Center.

“Remember when men jokingly said “no homo” to prevent their kindness from being mistaken for queerness? This 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.”

The Phyllis B. Frank Pride Center of Rockland County is a 501(c)(3) LGBTQ+ community center with an anti-racist, social justice mission. The Pride Center works to improve the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer people through community events, referrals and advocacy, survival services, and professional training. We dream of a future of abundance for our people: for Transgender and Non-Binary people, for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Queer people, for Black and other People of Color. We envision and manifest a world where LGBTQ+ people are safe, pursuing their dreams and goals, and held by a strong, vibrant community.

The Rockland County Pride Center is the proud recipient of the 2018 Rockland Business Association’s Pinnacle Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Non-Profit Organization.
