Welcome to Otsego Pride Alliance

Otsego Pride Alliance is proud to host Pride in Oneonta, NY every year to celebrate and honor the LGBTQIA+ community and its history.

At OPA, our aim is to build LGBTQIA+ community in this area. The Alliance includes, in addition to Otsego County, the queer community and allies in Upstate New York. Our organization started with the goal of brining Gay Pride to Otsego County, and has grown into a thirving queer community that hosts events all year and provides support for queer youth and familes.

We know how important it is to have queer community for support, safety, friendship and a sense of beloning. We invite you to join us for LGBTQ+ events, like skating, get-togethers in the park, drag shows, queer teen nights, and of course, for Pride in Oneonta! We list gay, lesbian & trangender friendly events in Upstate New York throughout the year which you can find on our events page. If you have a queer event you’d like us to promote, please let us know!

We hold regular meetings to plan the future of the organization, set up social events, and prepare for Pridefest every year. If you are interested in getting more involved, please send us a message. We will be happy to have you find a place in our organization!
