The house was ROCKING this past Saturday at the LGBTQ Community Center!  The organization hosted its 3rd Annual Dance-A-Thon, celebrating the history and progress of the LGBTQ community in Newark DJ Just Love had the room jumping, playing the crowd favorites all night! The two greatest unifiers were in the building – good music and good food! It’s always great to see people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities partying together and enjoying each other’s presence.

Over the course of the event, we had around 50 individuals come and join us to celebrate our work.  With the generous help of Newark Celebration 350, we were able to have a fantastic celebration that resulted in the Newark LGBTQ Community Center reaching and exceeding its goal of raising $25,000 to support our operational capacity. We are grateful to the many sponsors of the Center and are looking forward to continuing to host diverse programming that supports the needs of LGBTQ-identifying individuals in the area.
