A Message From Pride:

On April 9, we postponed 2020 Buffalo Pride Week, due to the unprecedented circumstances caused by COVID-19. Since then, we’ve worked tirelessly to monitor the spread of the virus and consult with our partners, medical professionals and community leaders. Now, like so many LGBTQ+ organizations throughout the country, we are re-imagining Pride in the year 2020.

For the safety of our community and loved ones, 2020 Buffalo Pride Week will not include the Pride Parade or Pride Festival. Pride Week WILL go on from August 17 to 23; Pride as a concept – as a time to reflect and raise our voices – will always remain.

We are actively working with our community partners to create non-crowd-based programming that engages and uplifts LGBTQ+ people in Western New York while keeping everyone safe. All affirming organizations, businesses and individuals can join us in celebrating 2020 Buffalo Pride Week by sharing their safe and lawful Pride activities on BuffaloPrideWeek.com.

These are difficult times for so many of us, but just as we have done for so many years, we will move forward, finding strength through love, inclusivity and unity.
