We all celebrate Pride in different ways, which is why you’ll find a wide range of events to support during Buffalo Pride Week. Take a look at the calendar below for information on each unique event.

We are promoting non-crowd-based programming that encourages and uplifts LGBTQ+ people in Western New York while keeping everyone safe. All affirming organizations, businesses and individuals can join us in celebrating 2020 Buffalo Pride Week by sharing their safe and lawful Pride activities.
