7th Annual Pink Prom in Asbury Park


Pink Prom on May 3, 2019 at Hotel Tides

Come out and support local LGBT organizations at the the 7th Annual Pink Prom in Asbury Park. It will be on Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Hotel Tides. This year Pink Prom, proceeds will benefit The Brian Holland Legacy Foundation and Asbury’s LGBTQ Health Center.

The Brian Holland Legacy Foundation is dedicated to three areas of impact for the LGBTQ community; education, support and the “Leave a Legacy” award which celebrates those whom leave a lasting impression on their peers and community. Holland was a selfless person who would sacrifice his time, energy, and money to charitable causes all across the state of New Jersey. He was an advocate for those whose voice wasn’t loud enough to reach the platforms that could make a difference. In meetings, conversations, discussions, and events Brian spoke up for those who could not speak for themselves.

The LGBTQ Health Center provides an array of comprehensive care and wellness programs in a safe, culturally competent environment. Current services include rapid HIV testing, STD screenings and PrEP counseling.
