COVID-19 Center Update

May 8, 2020

First and foremost, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

These are trying and uncertain times. Just a few months ago, who could have predicted the world would be united in a common cause: overcoming the human impacts of COVID-19 – the loss of life, feelings of isolation and loneliness, concerns about health and fears of economic uncertainty. But here we are, navigating this together.

Unfortunately, our opening date is still unknown. While it is essential that we adopt new ways of interacting to protect the health of our community, doing so can bring moments of unease and isolation. We are looking at what our center will look like when we do reopen. There will be many changes as we adapt to what will be our new normal for the near future. I will keep you posted on these changes when our reopening date is determined.

While the economic impact of our centers closing is not something I ever wanted us to face, I assure you that the Pride Center of New Jersey will get through this. We will be around to serve the LGBTQ+ community for many years to come.

COVID-19 has brought out some of the best in humanity, including our communities continued demonstrations of resilience and commitment to supporting all. These are the moments where we experience the very best of all of us. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones. I know that we are going to get through this, together.
