Newark Pride was founded after the horrific death of Sakia Gunn, a teenager who was targeted and murdered because of her sexual orientation in the heart of downtown Newark. Through grassroots organizing, Newark’s LGBT community advocated for safe spaces and programming. In 2005, Newark Gay Pride held its inaugural week-long Pride celebration. Ten years later, Newark Pride has evolved with the city’s changing landscape and has grown into an event drawing thousands of people to Newark’s Downtown Business
