Governor Cuomo: “New York is the birthplace of the LGBTQ rights movement, and while celebrating Pride during the pandemic will certainly be different for our LGBTQ community, New Yorkers are finding ways to come together and show the world that we stand united not only by love, but our commitment to progress. In that spirit, we are lighting iconic landmarks across New York State in colors of the LGBTQ Pride Flag and sending a clear message that, even in unprecedented times, nothing will stop our fight for equality.”
On Friday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that iconic landmarks across New York State would be lit in colors of the LGBTQ Pride Flag in recognition of Pride weekend. These include One World Trade Center, Pershing Square Viaduct, Kosciuszko Bridge, Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, Mid-Hudson Bridge, Whiteface Lake Placid Olympic Center, SUNY Central Administration Building, State Education Building, Alfred E. Smith Building, Niagara Falls and State Fair Main Gate and Exposition Center.
