Today, as the struggle for gay rights continues Heritage of Pride hosts New York City’s Pride events in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the beginning _of the modern Gay Rights movement.
Heritage of Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing LGBT Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community.
