Advanced Care: Planning for the “What Ifs”



Be sure to always check out Calendar of Events for the latest in upcoming programs, events or open meetings. Below are a few of the current or past events the Hudson Pride Foundation is proud to offer.

The Hudson Pride Weekend is the Hudson Pride Foundation's signature event. All money raised is put back into the community by way of Scholarships.

Hudson, NY is parade nirvana. Warren Street, Hudson's main thoroughfare, runs in a straight, gradual downhill slope right to the Hudson River. The waterfront sits beautifully framed by the Catskill Mountains. No one could ask for a better venue.

Every spring, the Hudson Pride Foundation offers an Educational Symposium to engage with Columbia County school districts.

This event was created as a way to connect with local educators and administrators, to shine a light on key issues that impact LGBT students.

Over the years, the focus has been on the ongoing bullying problem that most schools face.

We strive to work together to create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity


We haven't done as many movie screenings as we would have liked to, but the movies that we have screened are important ones and have made a lasting impression on those who have attended.

Sharing the experience of watching the important LGBT-themed films of our time is meaningful and something that we very much want to do more of.

Let us know what movies you would like Hudson Pride Foundation to screen. We'll do our best to make it happen.To-date, we've screened:

Gen Silent, Lucky, and Harvey Milk



The Hudson Pride Foundation's Family Pride Bowling is always well attended and a lot of fun! Held the past 2 years at Chatham Bowl in Chatham, NY, this family-friendly event has become an HPF tradition.

This is a great opportunity to get out of the house, enjoy some pizza, bowl a few frames, and share some laughs with your friends and neighbors.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Hudson Pride Foundation's Scholarship Program.

All ages are welcome.

We are so lucky to have such a diverse, open, thoughtful group of people in our community that are so willing to share their experiences, hardships, struggles, victories – both personal & professional, and the ongoing persistence for equality, by sharing their stories.

We need you, all of you, to share your suggestions for future speakers with us. Who would you like to hear from? Who’s story do you feel would add to this vocal tapestry? Maybe you have a story to share? Please reach out to us with your ideas.
