"Yonkers Pride Festival is about celebrating our unity, our acceptance, and the freedom to be ourselves."
Our mission is to produce an inclusive, secure, and fun event to promote freedom of expression, motivate activists in the on-going fight for equal rights, and to honor and celebrate the diversity of the Yonkers LGBTQ+ community, their families, and allies.
