Harriet Tubman Home, Auburn

Throughout 2022, New York State is celebrating the bicentennial of Harriet Tubman, commemorating the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman's birth. Celebrations include the launch of "Travel with Tubman", a National Parks Service initiative that guides visitors through eight states and 13 historic Harriet Tubman sites of significance, including six New York historic sites.

“I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say; I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.”

Pride is always an exciting time in New York, and this year’s events bring with it an extra sense of hope. A touch of normalcy has returned and communities are gathering together in-person once again to celebrate Pride safely. 2022 highlights include the return of the NYC Pride March, the illumination of Niagara Falls in Pride colors, and Long Island Pride’s newest location. At these and other Pride events in New York, LGBTQ New Yorkers and visitors will come together again in the birthplace of the modern movement to show love for each other, for the community, and for New York!
