Gay Pride Parade â€“ June 28, 2009
For NYC Quakers it is a 40 year tradition – the only religious group who has been there from the night of the Stonewall uprising. Join NYC Quakers on June 28.
This year’s parade commemorates the June 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn when over 2,000 individuals expressed their outrage at the New York City Police Department’s attempts to raid the Greenwich Village establishment.
Since the Stonewall Uprising, the LGBT rights community, along with their families and friends, have continued to fight for justice and equality for all. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the uprising.
The 2009 national theme is “What’s Past is Prologue: Honoring Our Past, Forging Our Future.”

This first dialogue will explore our relationship to money.
We will share the ways in which we view money.
Is it a tool for survival?
Does it free you to do work that you feel called to do?
How do you make decisions about money?
