In downtown Binghamton earlier this evening, locals celebrated the beginning of Pride Month at a party hosted by the PRIDE of Binghamton.

Dozens showed their pride at the Peacemaker's Stage, enjoying performances and taking part in events like trivia.

Alongside this, several local, queer-owned businesses sold goods to the participants, with free snacks and water being given as well.

Today's festivities were just the start of the month long celebration, with events planned all throughout the Southern Tier in the coming weeks.
