The City of New Rochelle and New Rochelle Pride held their third annual New Rochelle Pride Day at City Hall on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.  The event began with a program featuring speakers from the City of New Rochelle and New Rochelle Pride, and raising of the Pride flag; and continued with a resource fair featuring community partners United Westchester Community Center, the New Rochelle Public Library, the Humane Society of Westchester, the LOFT LGBTQ Community Center, Montefiore New Rochelle, the Westchester Human Rights Commission, and New England Fertility- as well as treats and giveaways. The event was sponsored in part by the New Rochelle Corporation for Local Development and Montefiore New Rochelle.  

New Rochelle Director of Director and Inclusion and LGBTQ Advisory Committee Staff and Community Liaison Sam Gomez organized the event. “New Rochelle has always been a diverse and inclusive city.  I am proud to be able to host New Rochelle Pride Day to showcase our open and welcoming community,” he said.

 Additional speakers included New Rochelle Development Commissioner Adam Salgado, Office for the Aging Executive Director Phillis Maucieri, Det. Melissa Diniz- LGBTQ Police/Community Liaison, New Rochelle Pride member Samuel Stone and Pastor Jennie Talley of St. Johns and Trinity St. Paul’s Church.

 Officials in attendance were County Legislators Damon Maher and Catherine Parker, Mayor Noam Bramson, Deputy Mayor Sara Kaye and Council Member Ivar Hyden. “I am very grateful to live in a community where all people are encouraged to be their true, best selves, and where we lift up our neighbors, friends, and colleagues with respect and love,” said Mayor Bramson. “The Pride Flag and the other Pride symbols in place today at New Rochelle City Hall affirm these important values, while also celebrating the enormous contributions made by LGBTQ residents to our whole city.”

 For the second year in a row, the City of New Rochelle has earned a score of 100 (103 raw score) in the Human Right’s Campaign Municipality Index Score which grades cities in the United States based of LGBTQ rights, supports, and friendliness.
