Welcome to Fairny.org the website of Fairness Alliance and Information Resources of New York, Inc, working for a FAIR New York for all.

We are a not for profit organization, and the host of the LGBTQ Pride Booth at the New York State Fair, which is held annually in Syracuse, New York.

We host the educational booth at the New York State Fair to provide information and resources on issues ranging from bullying of LGBTQ youth, discrimination facing members of the LGBTQ community in employment, housing and health issues, GENDA, marriage equality and protection of LGBTQ families. Our Booth is a highly visible space that welcomes the general public as well as members of the LGBTQ community, as we work to promote inclusion and diversity through educational information and resources.

The 2018 New York State Fair will run from Wednesday August 22 to Monday September 3. Here is the schedule for the 2018 Booth:

Pride Day is Friday August 24
Faiths Days are Saturday August 25 and Sunday August 26
Senior Day is Monday August 27
Ally Day is Tuesday August 28
Health Day is Wednesday August 29
Family Day is Thursday August 30
Student Day is Friday August 31
Transgender Day is Saturday September 1

2018 will be our 18th year at the New York State Fair! Our basic mission remains the same - to provide resources and information for the LGBTQ community, our family members, service providers, educators and the general public. Because so many LGBTQ people feel isolated in their communities, we provide resources that can provide connections to supportive organizations and services. We also provide resources to encourage members of the public to become allies of the LGBTQ community.

On Family Day, Health Day and Youth Day our goal is to help educate the public on issues facing LGBTQ youth, including bullying and homelessness.

We also work to educate the public on the many issues facing members of the transgender community. One of the biggest obstacles to achieving equality and justice for transgender and gender non-conforming people is the fact that many New Yorkers do not understand what it means to be transgender or gender non-conforming. This causes misconceptions and forms a culture where transgender people are often disregarded, discriminated against or worse. We believe the best way to overcome these obstacles is to educate the public about the lives of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals and our communities. Transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers, like other communities in our state, are diverse and vibrant groups of people with many different stories and experiences.
