Speaker Quinn will unveil the ad at the Empire StatePride Agenda Fall Dinner this evening.</p><p>New York City is the most diverse place in the world, and that diversity is one of the mainthings that make it the greatest city in the world. The most American of ideals those of freedom,openness and acceptance have always been incomparably alive in New York City. Its up to us tocelebrate and protect those ideals, and thats what this campaign is about.</p><p>In the past weeks and months there have been multiple bias attacks and deaths as a resultthroughout New York and the country. This is unacceptable, said Speaker Quinn. We must continueto educate our youth and spread the message to every New Yorker that we love who you are and hateis not an option within our five boroughs. This campaign will help us do just that. New York is a statewhere we value diversity. We need to continue our message of acceptance and love for all NewYorkers.</p><p>The campaign will run from mid-October through at least the end of the year. It will run inEnglish and Spanish. In addition to using traditional media outlets, NYC &amp; Company will capitalize onsocial media forums, including Facebook, flickr, Twitter, Youtube, Vimeo, and others.
