Letters of Pride: Catherine Pirone, Mendota Avenue

MyRye.com is publishing a series of letters of support for raising the Pride flag on City flagpoles. The letters were sent to the City ahead of the City Council voting to fly the flag, and are a matter of public record.

Dear Mayor Cohn and City Council members,

I support the raising of the Pride Flag in June. Some of my closest friends are gay and I can’t tell you how much it would mean to them to have Rye proudly show our inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community. I can’t even believe that this is an issue in 2021.

Thank you and I hope this will happen in 2021!

Cathy Pirone
