About OutHudson

OutHudson is a volunteer-led non-profit organization, whose mission is to improve the quality of life and advance the visibility of LGBTQ people in Columbia County. OutHudson was formed in 2016 and obtained official non-profit status from New York State in 2019. OutHudson is responsible for organizing the annual OutHudson Pride Festival, which includes about 12 events during Father’s Day Weekend.

Throughout the year, OutHudson organizes various social and educational LGBTQ events in Columbia County. This includes movie screenings, intergenerational programming, potlucks, discussion groups, youth/teen support groups and events, drag brunches, cabaret shows, author/poetry readings, Drag Queen Story Time, community town halls, boat cruises, educational workshops, family days at Chaseholm Farm, HIV/AIDS programming, and LGBTQ tourism events. OutHudson also sponsors an annual scholarship award for local high school seniors.
