ITHACA, N.Y. Finger Lakes PULSE is a community action oriented club for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and non-binary residents of all ages, races, religions, and ethnicity.

Finger Lakes PULSE was formed in response to the tragic shootings that happened at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Our aim is to honor those impacted by the Orlando tragedy by organizing and building community. PULSE represents the pulse of life, equality, and unity that advances positive change, a phoenix rising from ashes.

We invite and welcome all perspectives with a desire to discover barriers, encourage paths to create conversations that lead to change, and to shape policy to create positive solutions to achieve a safer sand thriving environment for everyone.

Our first annual PRIDE celebration,”PULSING”The”Night”Away, will include live music by Encore, a tattoo contest at 9pm, and Alisha Day and friends Drag Show. Only 200 tickets available –when they’re gone, they’re gone! Ticket are available for purchase here. 

Cash bar and light snacks will be available. Come dance with us and show your PRIDE!
