Every June, millions of Americans celebrate the culture, struggles, and victories of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community during Pride month. These celebrations often culminate in a Pride parade. This year marks 50 years since the Christopher Street Liberation Day March on June 28, 1970
Christopher street is located in Chelsea, High School of Fashion Industries happens to be nestled in the heart of Chelsea and has been ‘the’ safe haven for LGBTQ youth for as long as we can remember apart from Harvey Milk High School located in the Village.
To celebrate 5 decades of PRIDE, we want to award a Fashion Design Major student with a sewing machine!
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS AWARD HAS BEEN MET – THIS GRANT WILL BE REINTRODUCED and AWARDED NEXT PRIDE MONTH, JUNE 2021
Celebrate PRIDE’s 50th Anniversary by sharing ‘What PRIDE means to you‘ in a short video posted on your IG and tag @lesdowntown & @powerofoneforall & @liveoutloud_info & @fashionhighnyc
