Support Tarab NYC and the Arab Queer Collective March in Pride

The last time an Arab group marched in NYC pride was in 2003, when the fierce members of the Gay Lesbian Arab Society (GLAS) loudly and proudly took to the streets. Ten years later, even louder and prouder, the Arab Queer Collective and Tarab NYC are marching in the 2013 NYC Pride March on Sunday, June 30th!

The expenses for having a big presence at pride can quickly add up and we need your help.  Can you please make a donation today?  Please click here to make a donation!

Want to march?  Sign up to march here, lineup begins at 11am, allies are welcome.
