May 30, 2023: Message From Executive Director Judy Troilo




(White Plains, NY)


Dear Friends,

There is a buzz in the air about this year's Westchester Pride Event. It's this SUNDAY, JUNE 4 and starts at noon on Court Street between Martine and Main Street in downtown White Plains, free admission.

Join us, bring your pets for the Pet Parade, enter the Homecoming Queer and win a Nordstrom shopping spree, enjoy the drag performances by Season 15-RuPaul's Drag Race break-out star, Robin Fierce. Enjoy live music from Mishti, Alex, and Allison, an amazing trio who have performed with legendary musicians--they are bringing all of that musical magic here!

There's also going to be so much delicious food like tacos, hamburgers, cookies and so much more! Bring the entire family too and take the little ones to our Family Fun Zone to enjoy the activities!

Let's face it, we need a good party.

Drag performers are being outlawed, parents who support their queer youth are being threatened with incarceration, social media spaces like Twitter have become toxic cesspools of hatred, books are being banned by school boards and of course, the scourge of mpox is rearing its ugly head again in our community.

How do we fight back? We organize, come together and protect each other. Bullies think twice about taking on large, organized communities. Join us in solidarity and celebrate everything we have fought for and will continue to fight for.

PRIDE wasn't just a riot, it was a celebration of our existence. This is why we need to come together like never before, to show the world that we are willing to fight for our right to exist.

Of course, we're also going to have tons of fun doing it!

We hope to see you at Pride and that you know how deeply loved and special you are as a member of The LGBTQ+ Community. Oh, and don't forget to join us at the After Party!


Yours in Pride,

Judy Troilo
