The Office of Multicultural Affairs, LGBTQ Allies and the Students Allies for Equality are co-hosting a Community Pride Walk Saturday to raise awareness in the community to enhance advocacy for LGBT concerns in Schenectady County.

Along with the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission’s LGBT Committee, this year’s event supports the transgender community, highlighting the need to add gender identity and expression to the list of the protected classes under the state’s Human Rights Law.

Registration for the walk, which is free, starts at 11 a.m. in the College’s parking lot at the corner of Nott Street and Seward Place. The walk, which is about 2.5 miles, will begin at 11:30 a.m.
