Our SafeOUTSide the System Collective coordinated our annual Bed Stuy Pride in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn this summer. Thank you to Crystal Waterton for producing a video of this year's Bed Stuy Pride.
The Safe OUTside the System Collective hosts Bed Stuy Pride annually as a non-corporate community and family event, rooted in Bed Stuy’s Black cultural legacies of pride, resistance, and resilience. We build space to honor our ancestors we lost to homophobia, transphobia, racism, and the state, and to remember Bed Stuy’s history of resilience and resistance in the face of violent oppression.
