New York - Upstate
In February 2004 the same-sex weddings in New Paltz pushed the Hudson Valley LGBTQ community to the forefront of the national media.
In June of 2005 the New Paltz Pride March and Festival added to the momentum.
With it's opening in 2007 the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center located in the historic Stockade District of Uptown Kingston NY, is working to build tomorrows infinitely safer, saner and healthier than our yesterdays.
Today, the Valley's network of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer people is growing exponentially.
By coming together as a cohesive group, we are building a greater social network to host special events, develop programs to serve and educate both ourselves and the community, and leverage our political voice as one to be taken seriously on both a local and a national level.
You don't need to be a member to participate in the Center's events, over 1,100 people have already climbed on board.

Jersey City Lesbian and Gay Outreach (JCLGO) and Jersey City Lesbian and Gay Outreach on MySpace
A vital voice in Jersey City committed to bringing the LGBT community together, JCLGO was founded in May of 2001 when residents noticed there was a fast growing population of Queer folks moving into Jersey City, but no real sense of community.
Very quickly JCLGO grew into an all-volunteer group and in only 3 months hosted Jersey City's 1st LGBT Pride Festival on August 25, 2001.
By 2004, JCLGO reached a milestone in Hudson County by raising the rainbow flag, a symbol of LGBT Pride, for the first time ever at the Hudson County Courthouse and at City Hall, Jersey City.
Today, JCLGO has continued to be as influential and proactive as it was when it was first founded in 2001.
