Heritage of Pride is committed to recruiting dedicated, reliable volunteers to assist in the production and execution of New York City’s annual Pride events. Though volunteers need not identify as LGBTQIA+, it is imperative that all volunteers be LGBTQIA+ affirming and support the ongoing struggle for full equality. Through training and support, Heritage of Pride aims to empower volunteers and encourage their ongoing participation in the organization’s annual planning.
