Lastly, THANK YOU for your continued interest and patience regarding the hosting of this festival. We know that so many of you shape your calendars around this annual celebration, and that its absence is felt deeply. We are hopeful that 2022 can be a year of new directions and rebuilding, always striving towards progress.

We will do our very best to reply promptly to your thoughtful inquiries and messages! Our crew is small and volunteer-based, so at times we may be unable to respond during the work week due to families, careers, etc.

Our Mission

To foster events that honor the integrity, history and diversity of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer community and to focus on education, awareness, and unity among LGBTQ+/allied communities.

Noho Pride would like to pay tribute to our former co-chair and director, Bear White, who passed away on Wednesday, 9.11.2019 after suffering from cancer for many months. She served as a member of the Noho Pride Board and Planning Committee from 2010 until 2017. Bear played an integral role in transforming the previous “Northampton Pride” into the current “Noho Pride”. She helped inspire change, which resulted in continuous progress and upward movement for the Noho Pride Event. We will forever be thankful for her work, her time and her love; she will be missed.

For those who are interested in being a part of the crew that works consistently throughout 2022 and beyond to re-imagine and re-shape the future Noho Pride and its events, we are holding an information session meeting on Wednesday, March 23 at 7 p.m. via Zoom where we will begin organizing new volunteer working groups. Please sign up to attend here.

Noho Pride 2022 Update

That being said…

Greetings Folx! Now that 2022 is fully underway, we are honing in on how the landscape for eventing has shifted over the last two years, and subsequently how Noho Pride can adapt and be flexible with the current times. We have come to realize that the same parade and festival that we’ve all known and loved for many years, has become an incredibly challenging undertaking for our small crew to plan given the consistent ebb and flow of COVID-related obstacles. Our vision is to look ahead and work towards new, fresh ideas in order to adapt accordingly to create meaningful and impactful experiences for our beloved community.

For those who are looking for some queer jubilance: we can confirm that the parade and festival for May 2022 is currently postponed due to the ongoing difficulty of hosting an event that typically sees 40,000+ attendees, while observing safe mask practices and social distancing. However, please stay tuned, there is more information to come about alternative opportunities to connect and celebrate as a community throughout 2022! You can sign up to receive email updates here.
