Igniting Equality for LGBT New Yorkers for 25 Years!

Location

New York State Capitol
Albany, NY
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Headline Rally Speaker Announced!

We’re thrilled to announce that trans activist and rising star Daniella Carter will deliver the headline remarks at this year's Equality & Justice Day rally at noon on Tuesday, April 28! 

Following in the footsteps of Janet Mock, Laverne Cox and Lourdes Hunter, who all spoke at previous Equality & Justice Day rallies, Daniella is a long-time friend of the Pride Agenda. She was featured in the MTV & Logo TV documentary "Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word;" guested on MSNBC's "Out There on Shift;" initiated a project to bring visibility to trans youth issues; collaborated with Miss Universe and others to share their experiences in overcoming homelessness; and was recently listed as a 2015 Trans100 honoree, among other impressive accomplishments.

Daniella's message transcends boundaries of race and gender, focusing on the intersectionalities of identities that makes our community so beautifully diverse. Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Foundation recently referred to Daniella as, 'the future of our movement and the right now of our movement."

Come together with members of the LGBT community and our allies all across New York in the Pride Agenda’s 25th year to advocate for:

• Transgender civil rights and the passage of GENDA
• Protecting youth from harmful conversion efforts
• Securing resources for homeless youth and health services for all
• Making second parent adoption law more accessible and legalizing surrogacy

Our day-long conference, breakfast and lunch programs, an afternoon rally and visits with Legislators. E&J Day shines a light on power in numbers for LGBT equality all across New York State and instills community pride, creates bonds and friendships and ensures lasting change for LGBT people throughout New York.
