Southern New Jersey LGBTA and allies Pride is a grass-root organization that promotes equality, respect, and awareness of causes important to the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and questioning community of Southern New Jersey and surrounding area. We come together every September for a weekend of events, forums, and workshops in a safe and comfortable environment for our supporters to come together as one. One most notable contribution to this community would be our "Pride Picnic" festival, which brings Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia's LGBTQ community together proving there is a LGBTQ community in Southern New Jersey...No matter what you've heard.
What is gay pride? Why do we celebrate it?
Gay pride, LGBTQA pride or simply pride is a positive stance against discrimination and violence toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community to promote their self-affirmation, increase their visibility as a social group, build community and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. Each year the Southern New Jersey LGBTQA Pride Committee takes this time to educate our community on prominent issues within the community. The concentration of the Southern New Jersey LGBTQA Pride Committee is anti-bullying.
