Rochester Pride Events

Posted by Joseph on June 29, 2024

Hello again, it’s me, Joseph! I’m on the move and getting ready for all things PRIDE in Rochester, NY. I know, dear reader, that Pride Month kicked off in many states on June 1st. In fact, Rochester has had some great events thus far. It turns out, however, that our favorite Rochester Pride Events actually happen in July, which just extends the celebration. The timing also gives us a chance to reflect on the 4th of July. We are so fortunate, that most days freedom is the cornerstone of our community. In our country, at least on paper, love is love is love is love is love and you are who you are no matter what flag you fly. Check out these opportunities to show your love and pride!
