Who We Are & What We Do
Delaware County Pride is an organization made up of members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies in rural NY. We seek to create a network of resources and support; build and strengthen community; and promote equity and inclusion.
LGBTQIA+ is an acronym that describes people who do not identify as heterosexual, cisgender, or straight. The letters stand for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning (which includes people who are gender fluid and/or non-binary), Intersex, and Asexual. The plus acknowledges that the words to describe gender and sexual identity are not limited to LGBTQIA and are constantly evolving. Examples of other letters that may be included are 2S for the native specific 2 spirit and P for pansexual. We also wish to include those for whom a specific letter doesn't feel authentic.
