Come join the Safe OUTside the System Collective of the Audre Lorde Project for our first annual BEDSTUY PRIDE. The Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective is an anti-violence program led by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans, and Gender Non Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) people of color. We are devoted to challenging hate and police violence by using community based strategies rather than relying on the police.

Why BedStuy Pride?

The Audre Lorde Project’s S.O.S. Collective will host the 1st Annual Bed-Stuy Pride to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Transgender and Gender-Non-Conforming people of color in the Bed-Stuy community. The day will feature performances, artists, vendors, activities for youth and adults, and more! Bed Stuy Pride 2011 is an opportunity for neighborhood folks to come together and celebrate the fabulous Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Transgender, and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color community in the neighborhood many of us grew up , and currently, live in. As an anti-violence community-based collective, SOS feels that one of the best ways to combat violence in our community is to start at home. Bed Stuy Pride 2011 is an opportunity for us to show our community how truly fabulous we are, Brooklyn style!
