For the first time our LGBT Community has been invited to participate in a parade other than our own Gay Pride Parade in June. The Staten Island Columbus Day parade will be Sunday on New Dorp Lane. Staten Island Pride Events (SIPE) will proudly carry their banner on the South Shore.

If you would like to march with the group, meet them at noon in front of New Dorp High School, just below Hylan Blvd. State Sen. Diane Savino will join us in solidarity of our LGBT community. For information contact sipridevents@gmail.com
