2013 Hudson Pride Week Recap

All of us at the Hudson Pride Foundation want to thank the city of Hudson, our supporters, volunteers, vendors, marchers and all those who participated in this year's pride for a wonderful 2013. We look forward to seeing you all again the 3rd weekend of June in 2014.

The Dignity for All Students Act

As advocates for young LGBT kids and youth in general, we are strong advocates for the Dignity for All Students act that was passed & implemented state-wide in July 2012. We are posting this 2013 updated DFAS amendment to encourage schools & parents to enforce this law.

ALL students should feel safe in school. ALL NY schools must abide by & enforce this law. Kids are counting on us to have their backs. Let's not let them down.
