In celebration of Pride Month

What a team!  Each year, under the direction of artist Peter Cheney, the Village of Nyack Mayor Jen WhiteTrustees, and friends paint two crosswalks in celebration of Pride Month. This is a powerful way of showing all who visit that Nyack welcomes LGBTQ people and our families.  By the way, have you ever wondered what the pink, blue, and white colors represent?  The Transgender Pride Flag was created by American Trans woman Monica Helms in 1999 and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2000. The flag represents the Transgender community and consists of five horizontal stripes: two light blue, two pink, and one white in the center.  Knowledge is power!
