Block Club Celebrates Pride 2017!

The clouds parted just in time for Buffalo’s annual Pride Parade on Sunday, celebrating the LGBTQ community in all its glory. What looked to be a rain-soaked day, following a week of gorgeous early-summer Buffalo weather, no less, turned into a full rainbow of pride and joy! Parade participants cheered in unison when the sun finally showed up, just as we were lining up for step-off.

Block Club marched for the fourth year in a row, with help from friends ABCDJ, who provided the best music in the whole parade. We had an incredible time, as always.

This year’s Pride Week, presented by our friends at The Pride Center of WNY and Evergreen Health, was another triumph. The Pride Center works to make Western New York a safe, healthy, and satisfying place for LGBTQ people to live, work, and establish their families. Pride is a huge undertaking, and their team did a phenomenal job once again.
