Pride 365

We believe the goodness of God’s creation is expressed in the lives and witness of LGBTQ+ people, who are an integral, inextricable part of our community — and the global church.

June Events

Every June, we commemorate Pride Month. It’s a time to celebrate our God-given identities and recommit to the work of liberation for all LGBTQ+ people.

Raising of the Pride Flag

It’s our tradition to raise Progress Pride flags outside Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel during Pride Month. The flags remind us of our commitment to celebrating and blessing the lives and gifts of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer siblings. The Progress Pride flag was designed in 2018 to better acknowledge trans people and Black and brown members of the LBGTQ+ community.

The History of Pride
in New York City

On June 28, 1969, a group of LGBTQ+ people resisted a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar on Christopher Street in the West Village. The ensuing rebellion lasted for five nights. This act of resistance is now known as the Stonewall Uprising and is widely recognized as the birth of the gay liberation movement in the United States. Since then, LGBTQ+ communities around the world have recognized June as Pride Month.
