Free Pride Flags Available

May 6, 2021

Pride month is quickly approaching, and while Pride celebrations will look a bit different again this year we (the Identity Youth Center) invite you to join us in showing your pride by letting your Pride Flag Fly from your home or business. 

We know that Pride is more than just festivals and parades, it is about our collective strength and resiliency as a community.  Join us in celebrating Pride this June by displaying a flag and together we will show that Pride is alive in every neighborhood, village, and town across the Southern Tier.

Pride flags are free to any household or business in the Southern Tier. (while supplies last, limit one per household or business)  Donations are accepted to support the work of the Identity Youth Center which provides services to LGBTQ+ youth and their allies.  

We encourage you to post pictures of your flag with the #PrideFlagFly #SouthernTierPride #IDYouth
