About Peekskill Pride:
In the summer of 2016, a group of Peekskill’s LGBTQ+ residents formed a community-minded social support network. Peekskill Pride grew from that spark with the continuing objective to raise awareness and visibility, showing visitors and prospective residents that there is a strong, supportive, welcoming community here in the most beautiful city on the Hudson.
Peekskill Pride incorporated in 2019 as an official 501c3 with the mission to foster safe, healthy, and supportive environments for LGBTQIA+ individuals of all ages, their allies, and families by working within the community to further the foundation for inclusion, diversity, and pride through education, advocacy, and celebration.
Our Peekskill Pride flag was designed by longtime resident and artist CR Johnson. It features our stunning Hudson River landscape silhouetted against the iconic rainbow flag designed by Gilbert Baker in 1978. This symbol represents more than LGBTQIA+ pride; it is pride for Peekskill and all the people who call this city home.
We invite everyone to get involved with our efforts, and we look forward to creating and continuing meaningful, inclusive programs over the coming years.
