WHY: LGBTQ+ people are Greenwich residents, family members, friends, neighbors, doctors and lawyers, teachers and first responders, essential workers and artists, parents and students, and so many other important members of our town. The rights of LGBTQ+ people, and transgender people in particular, remain under attack by extreme factions, including in this town. The need for visible allyship and education about LGBTQ+ lives and experiences and the need for equal rights and safety for our community is paramount. Our young adults remain most vulnerable and deserve affirming and safe environments to be their true selves.

Pride Month is an opportunity for us to come together as a community, celebrate and commit to creating a more equitable, fair and safe town and society for LGBTQ+ people to survive and thrive.

As it reads in the Greenwich Pride Proclamation that will be read by First Selectman Fred Camillo on June 2nd, “The Town of Greenwich proudly supports the rights of every citizen to experience equality and freedom from discrimination. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) communities contribute to the cultural, civic and economic successes of the Town of Greenwich; and we as a society acknowledge the need for education and awareness to end discrimination and prejudice.”

VISUALS: Elected officials, religious and community leaders, families, residents, allies and LGBTQ+ people speaking and gathered at Town Hall. Pride Progress flag raising in front of Town Hall. Activities on the lawn adjacent to Town Hall.
