Happy Pride!

Dear New York State Young Democrats,

As President of the New York State Young Democrats, I would like to wish everyone in the LGBT community a very happy Pride!  This is a very special year, as this marks the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, and the birth of the LGBT Liberation Movement.

As the 39th annual Gay Pride Parade marches down Fifth Avenue, I urge all young democrats to remember what is at stake this year. Homosexual couples still are unable to marry in New York State. True equality is within our reach, but we need your help! I urge everyone to join our Marriage Equality Campaign and remind your State Senators that we demand equality now!

Please visit our campaign at

Remember that together we really can make a difference, and someday soon we will truly have Equality.
