Join us for this historic event – Yorktown’s first ever Pride March! We march to celebrate and to call attention to the ways that the LGBTQ+ community is still not done fighting for equality and liberation. Join us Saturday June 12 beginning at noon sharp so come early! Park in the old K-Mart lot and walk over to Yorktown Town Hall at 363 Underhill Ave.
Please bring the whole family and pass around the flyer! Bring a sign, bring a drum, bring a mask, bring your friends! We will hear from a dynamic selection of speakers to start off the day. We are honored to be joined by keynote speaker Congressman Mondaire Jones!
County Executive George Latimer remarks, “What Yorktown is doing is not only symbolic, but it will be a part of Westchester history. The year 2021, may be the first PRIDE march in Yorktown, but it certainly won’t be the last. In our towns, our villages, our cities, we will show – together – we are an inclusive Westchester, a diverse Westchester, and there is strength in that, and we are committed to doing the right thing and recognizing and understanding all people in Westchester County.”
