While the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center in Kingston is clearly the nerve center in the region for events and issues of special interest to the gay and lesbian community, the movement’s mid-Hudson heart must be said to lie in New Paltz. The pioneering (if not lastingly legal) same-sex weddings performed there by Village mayor Jason West in February 2004 took on historic import for upstaters comparable to that of the 1969 Stonewall Riots for gay denizens of New York City. And happily, no heads were bashed in, although a lengthy court battle followed.
