© 2023 by Rochester Black Pride

SEPTEMBER 4TH - 8TH, 2019

Rochester Black Pride is a week long festival that works to create all-inclusive Black atmosphere to celebrate, empower, & inspire the Black Queer/LGBT community in Rochester. We pride ourselves on being of the community, while working to provide positive experiences for the community.

 

WHAT IS BLACK PRIDE ROCHESTER & WHY IS IT NECESSARY?

This weekend provides a special opportunity to give a platform to the stories, talent, history, beauty, strength, struggle, future and triumph that is Black and Brown Queer, Lesbian, Gay, SGL, Transgender & Bi-Sexual Rochester.

 

While most of our events are open to the general public, our target audience is individuals over the age of 18 who identify as Black/African-American and Queer (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans*, Gender Non-conforming, Pansexual, etc). As we continue to expand we hope to include more youth, particularly those in high school.

WHO IS THE "COLLECTIVE" BEHIND ROCHESTER BLACK PRIDE?

A conscious effort is made each year to welcome all factions of our illustrious and diverse community to plan events and blueprint the Pride festivities. The goal being to create a weekend to rival Pride celebrations nationwide to give our local community a platform while drawing in guests from around the country to join in our events. Representatives who identify as Black/African-American and Queer (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans*, Gender Non-conforming, Pansexual, etc) were invited to be a part of the conversation, take leadership in the planning and create events to celebrate and educate the young, old, single, and families.
