The Pride Agenda’s annual Fall Dinner brings together over 1,100 supporters to celebrate the LGBT community and demonstrate our strength and commitment to achieving equality and justice for all LGBT New Yorkers. We will be joined by LGBT leaders, straight allies, politicians and decisionmakers who are all proud to stand up for the rights of LGBT New Yorkers.
This year the Pride Agenda is celebrating 25 years of leadership and will be honoring the original founding leaders of the Pride Agenda with the 2015 Douglas W. Jones Leadership Award.
In 1990, the Albany-based New York State Gay and Lesbian Lobby and the New York City-based Friends and Advocates for Individual Rights (FAIRPAC) merged to form the Pride Agenda. Since then, the Pride Agenda has counted over 100 separate victories on the local and state levels, including statewide guidelines fostering a safe and supportive education for trans students in New York and the passage of laws regarding discrimination, marriage, bullying, health and human services, and the runaway and youth homeless crises the LGBT community faces every day.
$600 Early Bird general tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 8. Beginning October 1, general tickets will be $750. General tickets for Young Professionals under the age of 35 will be available for $300.
