Join OutHudson for the Hudson Valley’s most exciting event for LGBTQ Pride Month – OutHudson’s LGBTQ Pride Parade! We chose this theme because, despite progress, the LGBTQ community continues to be under attack, as recently as this week with the passage of the hateful executive order sanctioning discrimination against Queer Families. “Wild Queendom” ferociously empowers our community while allowing us the opportunity to rejoice in our diversity, strength and beauty.”
Part of OutHudson’s LGBTQ Pride weekened and directly following the Hudson LGBTQ Parade down Warren Street, the 2017 Poke the Bear Beer Blast will have DJ’s Prephab, Gogo Bears, Cubs and Otters, and a killer good time at Hudson’s favorite spot, The Half Moon. All proceeds will benefit OutHudson’s mission to promote LGBTQ awareness in Columbia County, NY.
