We have much to be proud of and this year, we invite you to join Jersey Pride as we celebrate 25 years of pride.
New Jersey has been a leader in civil rights. In 1992, it was the fifth state to expand its Law Against Discrimination to include sexual orientation and it extended that Law again to include gender identity and expression in 2006. In 2004, New Jersey became the fifth state in the nation to recognize same sex relationships with ground breaking domestic partnership legislation, followed shortly thereafter with civil union recognition. Now we enjoy full marriage equality here in NJ.
New Jersey’s Pride Celebration provides an opportunity for community groups and businesses to distribute a wide variety of information, including job opportunities, housing options, family issues, disease prevention and screening, sources of support for victims of violence and abuse, legal rights and services, and the availability of support for issues that the gay community faces. It also features NJ’s largest outdoor display of the Names Project's AIDS Memorial Quilt, a large marketplace, a performance stage, a fabulous parade through the center of host city Asbury Park, and activities for children of all ages in our Family Zone. Our attendance each year keeps growing, and last year our crowd topped 25,000; dynamic performances on our rally stage helped make the day memorable. We are reaching out to the community to help make NJ's Annual Pride Celebration the best event it can be.
Jersey Pride’s goal is to continue to provide NJ’s community a quality Pride Celebration. To accomplish this goal we need your help.
