Strength Through Visibility – 20 Years of Pride in Jersey City
August 5 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In 2021, JC Pride celebrated its twentieth anniversary, but with the changing political climate in the country can we count on celebrations to come? Will the progress Pride has made over the years prove to be too fragile to survive?
Join us at Art House for this special Jersey City Pride Month screening of the documentary “Strength Through Visibility: 20 Years of Pride in Jersey City”. This documentary chronicles Jersey City Pride’s history, it also provides a roadmap for people around the world who want to start Pride events in areas with little to no support. We started by hearing “no” from the city and now Jersey City is one of the most welcoming cities in the world for LGBTQ+ people. A small number of people CAN make a difference. Come see our story and learn how.
“Strength Through Visibility: 20 Years of Pride in Jersey City” is the winner of the 2023 Garden State Film Festival Homegrown Documentary award. There will be a panel discussion after the screening. The screening will be “Free of Charge” but you must RSVP to attend the event.
The screening will. be followed by the Robert Koch Opening Reception in the Art House Gallery.
