‘Resurrect Pride’ Halloween themed event celebrates local LGBTQIA + Artists

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Saturday, Capital District Reclaim Pride is hosting a new and unique art festival in Albany’s Townsend Park. The Halloween-themed event, dubbed “Resurrect Pride,” is dedicated to uplifting the community’s marginalized LGBTQIA+ creators. It will run Saturday, October 23, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The event offers free tabling to artists and prioritizes low-income, BIPOC, disabled, and otherwise often overlooked members of the queer community. Capital District Reclaim Pride is working to lift the barriers to entry that are in place for artists at other pride events in the region.

Resurrect Pride will breathe new life into the local LGBTQIA+ art community with displays from over 30 different queer creators, from visual artists to live performers. The participants have been screened and selected based on their own need for experience and exposure, rather than their ability to contribute materially or financially.

Members of the organization believe that pride festivities should be a space that works to uplift and represent the full range of diversity in the local LGBTQIA+ community, rather than just a few large corporate sponsors and elite vendors.
