Dear Neighbor,


Thank you for joining us for another week in review!

Happy Pride Month! We stand with our LGBTQIA+ community and condemn all forms of hatred. Recently, we have seen unprecedented attacks on the rights of trans people across the country; but New York will always be a haven for all people regardless of their sexuality or gender and we will continue to fight against violence directed towards the LGBTQIA+ community.

Last week, we hosted our annual Pride Month Flag Raising and Awards Ceremony at Bronx Borough Hall to commemorate the start of Pride Month and celebrate the achievements and contributions of our LGBTQIA+ community. Take a look at our video recap, here.

We also joined with Bronx students during our first Bronx Youth Council (BYC) meeting! BYC is comprised of students from across the Bronx and curates a space for meaningful youth input. The youth is our future! The Council will act as an advisory board to the Borough President´s Office and will be tasked with researching policy issues and assisting in planning youth-centered events while learning the ways government and advocacy work together to create lasting change and promote civic engagement.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at


In partnership,

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson


In honor of Pride Month, we hosted our annual Pride Flag Raising & Awards Ceremony at Bronx Borough Hall. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made this year’s celebration a memorable one. Thank you also to our sponsors for making this important event possible.

A huge congratulations to our incredible honorees for their achievements and commitment to the Bronx and our LGBTQIA+ community. Your efforts do not go unnoticed.

You know the love is real when I make it all the way over to Queens!

I was honored to join with my fellow Borough Presidents, Queens BP Donovan Richards and Manhattan BP Mark Levine and local organizations for the 2023 LGBTQ+ Business Convening at LaGuardia Community College to help LGBTQ+ and allied businesses connect, discover and thrive in their field! The convening consisted of six panel discussions and a bonus fireside chat focused on inclusion and customer and employee experiences.

Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Congratulations to Bronx Community College’s Class of 2023! It is always an honor to join with Bronx Community College in celebration of the next generation of leaders. We are so excited to see all that you will accomplish in the new chapter of your lives. Thank you for having me.
