Christopher Street West’s Board of Directors
Christopher Street West is governed by an unpaid, volunteer Board of Directors. Members take on individual responsibility for directing and overseeing the production of PRIDE each year; they are assisted by committee members, numerous administrative and event volunteers, and a few paid consultants and staff.

Below is a list of deceased members of the Board of Directors of Christopher Street West. All of
them were unpaid volunteers, a tradition that has applied all the years of our existence. Each of
them has kept our history alive. We are the keepers of a major, national historic trust.
These kind volunteers came forth, grabbed the torch of freedom and served the cause with
dignity and integrity. We enjoyed working with them and are saddened by their deaths.
