Charlie Ferrusi, who had a featured role in the 2010 Pride Parade and is now a director of OutHudson, commented: "Flag Day and the American flag have always represented freedom and equality for all. The flag represents the unity of America, our common cause, and the hope for a better tomorrow. LGBTQ people have always been a part of America and the City of Hudson. We deserve to have a visible and vibrant presence at Hudson's Flag Day Parade."
The Flag Day parade takes place this Saturday, June 9. The parade steps off at 2:oo p.m. The OutHudson parade is next Saturday, June 16. It, too, begins at 2:00 p.m. Both parades go down Warren Street, from the Public Square to Front Street.
