LGBT Pride comes to Princeton, NJ

The Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice has organed the first-ever LGBT Pride Parade in Princeton. It will be on Saturday, June 22, 2019. This is Princeton’s inaugural Pride Parade.

“Princeton has been known as a welcoming community for a long time,” said Princeton Councilwoman Leticia Fraga. “Thanks to the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, we can assert that it includes our LGBTQIA community. The Pride parade being organized by Chief Activist, Robt Seda-Schreiber, will be a wonderful opportunity for all of us to support and to lift up our LGBTQIA community in celebration and solidarity.”

Andrew Zwicker, New Jersey Assemblyman said, “I am both humbled & honored to be a part of this inaugural march as we walk together with a common message that hate has no place in New Jersey or anywhere else in our great country.”
