Until 1973, the American Psychiatric Association’s manual of mental illness listed homosexuality as a disease. The fight for individual freedom is fought within oneself as well as in society. CURED provides important insight into how community comes together to drive change and support individuals in loving themselves and one another.
The Pride Center of Staten Island believes that together, we can imagine and create a better future for all Staten Islanders. Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden shares core values of inclusion and community, with a growing commitment to LGBTQ+ allyship. Learning to listen is how we respect one another, as well as acknowledging the difference between intention and impact. Social progress is driven by heroism, heartbreak, and justice.
To attend this indoor event, Snug Harbor requires proof of vaccination along with a photo ID, as well as wearing a mask while indoors.
