Progress Pride Flag flies next to Trinity Church

Trinity Celebrates Pride

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.

Trinity Church in New York City celebrates Pride and fully welcomes and affirms lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. Everyone is invited to participate fully in our worship and programs.

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.

To kick off the celebration, we raise the Progress Pride Flag at Trinity Church on Sunday, June 2. 

Raising of the Pride Flag

Sunday, June 2 | 12:30pm
Trinity Church

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.
