While June is recognized nationally as Pride Month, Monroe County’s LGBTQ+ community has traditionally celebrated Pride in July. 

In celebration of Monroe County’s Bicentennial and the 50th Anniversary of the county’s first organized Pride events, a selection of panels from the “Forging Alliances: Rochester’s LGBT Story” project are on display at several county-owned facilities.

You can view panels at the following locations:

  • Gordon A. Howe Monroe County Office Building
    39 W. Main St., Rochester, NY 14614
  • City Place
    50 Fitzhugh St. North, Rochester, NY 14614
