A Virtual Event Recognizing and Giving
Thanks to our Volunteers & Supporters!
Thank you for joining in recognizing and celebrating the volunteers who help keep our community strong!
We appreciate your participation and contributions to help fund our programming and keep our doors open. Fundraising continues through February. If you haven't already, please donate to help support our programs for the community.
Strength in Community Celebration
Join us as we celebrate the contributions of volunteers and supporters who keep the LGBTQ+ community strong! This event is an opportunity to bring us together and remind us of the strength and power of the community working together for the well-being of all LGBTQ+ individuals, including our most vulnerable, youth and trans populations.
It is also important to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of many who have helped make it all happen, and keep us moving forward.
Our Strength in Community event is a critical bridge to our annual fundraising gala, An Evening OUT with The Pride Center, which we unfortunately had to postpone due to COVID-19. Please see sponsorship opportunities available and help us support the community!

After Party hosted by DJ, Ode Hoppie
For over 25 years, The Pride Center of New Jersey has been a welcome space for the LGBTQ+ community to seek out and find affirmation though advocacy, community and friendship. 2020 was no different in that regard, but so different in many other ways! We temporality closed our doors due to COVID 19, but we never stopped working. Our all-volunteer board, group leaders and active members continued to advance the mission of the center throughout the pandemic, and we plan on doing so for many years to come.
Please join us in celebrating our Strength in Community! We can’t do it without you!
