The Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective is an anti-violence program led by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans, and Gender Non Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) people of color. They are devoted to challenging hate and violence by using community based strategies.

The day will feature performances, artists, vendors, activities for youth and adults, and more! Bed Stuy Pride 2011 is an opportunity for neighborhood folks to come together and celebrate the neighborhood many of us grew up , and currently, live in.

As an anti-violence community-based collective, SOS feels that one of the best ways to combat violence in our community is to start at home. Bed Stuy Pride 2011 is an opportunity for us to show our community how truly fabulous we are, Brooklyn style!
