More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Harlem Pride Hosts Town Hall Meeting to Kick-Off 2013 & New Capital Campaign
On Saturday, January 12, Harlem Pride will host its first Town Hall meeting to outline its 2013 Schedule of Events and to formally announce the launch of a new capital campaign to establish a Harlem Community Pride Center.
Founded after the inaugural Harlem Pride Day Celebration, which garnered more than three-thousand guests, since 2010, Harlem Pride has expanded to include monthly seminars and workshops, social events, and other community outreach activities.
The theme for the town hall is "Celebrating Pride and Diversity in our SGL & LGBT Communities and Organizations in Harlem!"
The town hall will take place at the Countee Cullen Library Auditorium located at 104 West 136th Street (at Lenox Avenue) and is scheduled to last from 2 pm to 4 pm. A light lunch will be served.
