The LGBT Network was proud to bring back Winter Pride – this past Saturday, January 21st, 2023 at Terrace on The Park, the annual fundraiser for the New Queens Pride Parade & Festival that will be held June 4, 2023 in Jackson Heights. Winter Pride brought together more than 350 people for a night of dinner, dancing, and live entertainment all in support of the Queens LGBT community.
Thank you to all our sponsors and attendees for their generosity. Proceeds from Winter Pride support the New Queens Pride Parade and Festival, as well as other pride initiatives the LGBT Network conducts throughout the entire borough all year long.
The LGBT Network announced Drag Story Hour as the first Grand Marshall for this year’s New Queens Pride Parade & Festival, highlighting the need to fight increasing extremism against the LGBT community, while continuing to build visibility and awareness.
“The LGBT Network’s sole mission is the LGBTQ community!” remarked David Kilmnick, PhD, President of LGBT Network. “All of the LGBT Network’s energy, and money raised is put towards creating safer spaces where we live, learn, work, play, and pray. Winter Pride didn’t just honor one person this year, it honored the entire LGBT community, because WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE TOGETHER!”
