"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

2nd Annual Bed-Stuy Pride 2012:
Challenging Violence and Building Resilience

Sunday, August 26th at Herbert Von King Park, Brooklyn
12PM – 6PM

Bed-Stuy Pride is an annual festival held in the heart of central Brooklyn that cherishes the diversity of our communities and recognizes the importance of creating safer spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, trans and gender non-conforming (LGBTSTGNC) people of color. Our communities experience greater violence related to both race and marginalized expressions of gender and/or sexuality including increased stop and frisks by police and stranger based violence. Transgender people of color are 2.38 times as likely to experience police violence and 1.85 as likely to experience discrimination [avp.org]. Organized by the Audre Lorde Project‘s Safe OUTside the System Collective (SOS) --- Bed-Stuy Pride is an opportunity to remind the residents of central Brooklyn of our histories and celebrate our communities.

Traditionally, pride marches all over the world (and especially in New York City) have been in recognition of the historic Stonewall riots. Contributions of transgender women of color like Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Riveria, and Miss Major --who were central to these historical riots are forgotten or ignored completely. Bed-Stuy pride is a chance to center these stories and provide the context of resistance and justice inherent in pride.

Bed-Stuy Pride highlights its commitment to safe neighborhoods and communities. On Sunday August 26th, there will be performances from local artists, interactive art installations, and community leaders. There will be a Freedom Tent [Inspired by 1968 Mississippi Freedom Schools] where skill-based workshops will be held including Navigating Gendered Public Space, Health and Wellness, Erotic Poetry, and much more will be offered throughout the day.

Free childcare, and Interpretation provided.
