The birthplace of Pride.
New York stands for Equality & Justice for all LGBTQI people.


Equality New York (EQNY) is an advocacy organization that unites and amplifies the social and political voices of the LGBTQI communities throughout New York State. We work to advance equality and justice for LGBTQI New Yorkers and their families. EQNY uses an intersectional lens to ensure equitable outcomes for our community

Our Community


LGBTQI communities deserve an efficient and effective statewide voice to:

  • Consistently build good relationships with government and hold our elected officials accountable; 

  • Be watchdog to ensure our rights continue to expand and stay protected;

  • Enable LGBTQI people to come together with strength to address issues, concerns, and challenges;

  • Impact elections to ensure the greatest number of pro-LGBTQI politicians hold office throughout the state.

New York deserves Equality New York
