The Pride Parade is a time when our community marches together down Elmwood Avenue in celebration of our history and culture, and as a visible representation of the multiple ways there are to be LBGTQ in WNY. – the Pride Center of Western New York
The Pride Parade lined up at SUNY Buffalo State with more than 100 WNY organizations participating. The Parade began at the intersection of Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue, and continued down Elmwood to the corner of Allen Street. The post-parade festival was held at Canalside.
