Celebrating Pride Month: A Personal Commitment to Supporting Local and National LGBTQ+ Organizations

    Diverse group of young people celebrating gay pride festival day

    Every June, we commemorate the Stonewall riots and celebrate the progress we’ve made in advocating for the rights and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community. As a company that values diversity and is proudly led by a gay man, Pride Month holds a special significance to us at Tipsy Social. We understand the importance of supporting the causes that hit close to home, advocating for equality, love, and acceptance.

    In honor of Pride Month, we want to shine a light on several deserving Hudson Valley-based organizations and national entities that are making a substantial difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals and businesses.
