Description

Babylon Village Pride is back again, with LGBTQ+ Pride Month set to be bigger and better than ever in the village.

The festivities kick off Sunday, June 2, with the village’s 5th annual Pride Parade at 1 p.m. Marchers and floats will assemble behind Fitness Incentive, before starting the parade on Main Street and then proceeding down Deer Park Avenue toward Lily Flanagan’s.

Created in 2020 by two Babylonians — Bob McKeown and a local entertainer who goes by Roman and Bob McKeown — the pride event has attracted interest from across Long Island and beyond. Babylon Pride gave back over $20,000.00 last year to local students through scholarships and grants.

For Roman and McKeown, what started out as a dream has become an event that has exceeded all expectations.
