  • United in Pride: NJ's Virtual Pride Celebration

    • Sunday, June 07, 2020 at 12:00 PM
    • Facebook Live and YouTube

    While the pandemic has prevented our community from gathering in person this year, Jersey Pride and Garden State Equality have partnered to bring you an exciting virtual Pride Celebration.

    Join us for United in Pride: New Jersey's Virtual Pride Celebration on Sunday, June 7 at 12:00 pm!

    This virtual celebration invites those participating, as well as those viewing, to reflect on what Pride means to them and how the spirit of pride can carry us forward during these challenging times.

    This year’s unique event will feature the same great entertainment you’ve come to expect — including La Bouche, Janice Robinson, Felipe Rose, Holly Near, and BETTY — along with plenty of very special guest speakers, local and regional LGBTQA performers, and a few surprise attractions.

    Throughout United in Pride, we’ll also be raising funds to support organizations in New Jersey fighting for racial justice. Our community understands what it means to rise up and push back against a culture that tells us we are less than, that our lives don't matter. This Pride Month, we’ll be standing united with Black Americans to dismantle injustice.

    RSVP below and let us know you'll be joining us for this exciting event!
