On Thursday, July 30th, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. met with Lisa Winters, Executive Director of the Bronx Community Pride Center, and presented a proclamation to the organization to celebrate Bronx Pride Day. Borough President Diaz and Winters also discussed their shared agenda for the Bronx LGBT community, including topics such as equal access to borough services and future funding for LGBT initiatives.
“The Bronx Community Pride Center was created to support and empower the Bronx LGBT community, and I applaud the great job they have been doing since the creation of the center. The LGBT community should receive all the services and resources available to Bronxites in general, and they need to be treated with respect and without discrimination. My administration will work with them to achieve those goals,” said Diaz Jr.
