Celebrate Pride This Saturday

Woo-hoo! Jersey City Celebrates Pride in its 13th LGBT Festival on Saturday 8/24. Exchange Place Plaza is where the action starts and goes on from noon to 6pm. Come out and show your support for equality.

There will be plenty of entertainment—live music, games, an obstacle course, food, a vendor’s marketplace, a dunk tank, bronco ride and plenty of guest speakers who are prominent on the battle for local and national recognition. Our ever-present Mayor Steve Fulop will also be making an appearance.

This year’s hosts are Hudson Pride Connections Center and Humanity Pride. PRIDE co-chairs Jonathan P. Lucas and Michael Billy are expecting the biggest turnout yet.

Please recognize that this is a free event for all residents with no suggested donation, just simply that you support the message.
