Sylvia Rivera (1951-2002) was a Latina civil rights activist in New York City. A veteran of the Stonewall Riots in 1969, she went on to become a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front, an early gay rights organization. She and her close friend Marsha P. Johnson also created S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries), the first modern organization to help homeless transgender and gender non-conforming youth in New York City.

We will be celebrating Marsha P. Johnson on her birthday on August 25th.



The entrance is located on Jackson Ave., just past the fire escape (across the street from the Orangetown Police Substation). Please ring the bell for entrance.

We ask that attendees park in the Nyack Municipal Lot located off Cedar St. This lot is a two block walk from the new Pride Center building. Please leave time to park and arrive at the Pride Center on time. All parking meters are in effect from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm to 6:00 am Monday through Sunday. The cost for the meters is $0.75 per hour.

Because we want to be good neighbors, please do not park in or walk through the private lot directly across Franklin Street from the Pride Center. Instead, park in the Municipal Lot and follow Artopee Way past the bus stop. There is also a small lot on Jackson that is not open to public parking.

This event is on the ground floor of the new Pride Center building. The entrance door is level with the street, with two steps down into the room. These steps will be navigable by a temporary, metal wheelchair ramp. There is a single-occupant, gender neutral restroom on the ground floor. This restroom meets ADA space requirements and clearances, and there is a grab bar near the toilet.

If you need additional information about accessibility, please contact the Pride Center at (845) 353-6300 or by email at pride@rocklandpridecenter.org.
