Description

You're cordially invited to march with the Caribbean Equality Project and our community partners in the 2017 Queens Pride Parade!

On Sunday, June 04, 2017, the Caribbean Equality Project (CEP) in partnership with Blue Mist Lounge, Gay Caribbean, Dreamz and Reality & Team Slackness will proudly participate in the 25th Anniversary of the Queens Pride Parade and Festival held in Jackson Heights, Queens, NY to represent the growing Caribbean LGBTQ community in the diaspora. Since its inception, CEP has made significant strides in advancing the inclusion of Caribbean LGBTQ voices in NYC. PRIDE comes once a year, and we passionately believe it’s a time for unity, celebration and continued advocacy for true liberation from our colonial chains. This year, our goal is to unite the Caribbean LGBTQ community under the colorfully inclusive theme: “Prideful Mosaic: LGBTQ People of the Caribbean”. This aligns with our effort to present a contingent inclusive of our Afro- & Indo-Caribbean cultural backgrounds and ancestry.

Please join us as we proudly march in the annual Queens Pride Parade, and amplify our collective movements to educate, inspire, empower and create greater visibility for the Caribbean LGBTQ community in NYC, & PRIDEfully celebrate our diverse heritage.

Come march with us in cultural and carnival-inspired apparel, your country colors or come just as you are, as we proudly celebrate our Caribbean LGBTQ identities.

PLEASE DON’T FORGET YOUR FLAGS!

Sunday, June 04, 2017 | 11:00AM – 2:00PM
CEP Meeting Location: 37th Ave & 89th St., Jackson Heights, NY 11372
