Councilwoman proposes city’s first Gay Pride event

Newburgh Councilwoman Gay Lee is looking to organize the city’s first-ever Gay Pride festival this August, making it an annual event.

Lee, who is gay, introduced the idea at Thursday’s City Council work session, garnering verbal support from her colleagues.

“It doesn’t have to be something grand,” she said. “We need something that sends a message to the city, to the people of this city, that there are gay people who live in the City of Newburgh.”

Lee wants to form an organizing committee. Anyone interested can email her at legayse@gmail.com
