Yonkers Pride works to improve the lives of LGBTQIA+ people in Yonkers through visibility, outreach, education, scholarship, and fun, safe events and activities that build community. The goal is to unite our diverse and unique community by offering programs and activities that enhance mental and physical health, provide social support and inclusion, motivate activists in the on-going fight for equal rights, and foster awareness of the past and present contributions of LGBTQIA+ persons and allies.
Yonkers Pride hosts an annual outdoor festival showcasing celebrity entertainment, food, merchandise, numerous community organizations, and activities for children and people of all ages. In addition to the festival, Yonkers Pride awards scholarships to Yonkers Public High School seniors or recently graduated individuals currently attending an accredited institution.
All funds raised through this campaign will support Yonkers Pride’s programs and initiatives.
