Third Avenue Business Improvement District - 1 Bronx Pride 2020

1 Bronx Pride Launches with LOVE.  
2020 Bronx LGBTQ Pride is the Movement for Equity
The Third Avenue Business Improvement District and Destination Tomorrow - the Bronx LGBT Center, in partnership with the Bronx LGBTQ Caucus, the Bronx Borough President's LGBTQ Policy Taskforce, Montefiore Medical Center, Community Healthcare Network, Boogie Down Pride, and Bronx Pride continue a unified demand for LGBTQ equity by announcing the 2020 Bronx Pride agenda and programming.  The culmination of year-long planning based on a platform of equity for the LGBTQ community in the Bronx has resulted in a multi-faceted policy and program agenda that will be celebrated during the 1 Bronx Pride Rally, March, and Festival on Sunday, June 21, 2020 in the heart of the downtown Bronx Civic Center at 149th Street and Third Avenue.

This year's 1 Bronx Pride series connects to year-long programs and includes sober and safe space programs, and through partnerships with Out My Closet and NYC Department of Transportation and Department of Health, events for young people.

The Festival promotes inclusion, community, and dialogue and works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law.  The Festival celebrates the movement started by Bronxites that laid the groundwork for equity, the next wave of creative thinkers prepared to score their own trails, and each individual in between. This year's framework of LOVE. responds to the attacks the LGBTQ community has experienced under the Trump administration and provide a path to organize and continue the movement forward for generations of LGBTQ individuals.

The Third Avenue Business Improvement District promotes the growth, vitality and visibility of the Bronx’s oldest and most trafficked commercial corridor. Our organization is helping drive the systemic change needed to support equitable economic development in the Bronx. We organize and build coalitions, provide strategic community services, provide research and data analysis, and support targeted advocacy efforts that strengthen community voices, build community power, and help to win economic development policies that invest in people as much as they invest in places.
Destination Tomorrow - the Bronx LGBT Center is a grassroots agency located in the South Bronx that provides services to and for the LGBTQ community. It is our belief that no one should have to leave their neighborhood to access LGBTQ specific services. It is our belief that all LGBTQ young people deserve a space to grow, learn and flourish. It is our belief that people, regardless of their sexual identity or gender expression deserve a space they can call their own.
