Hoboken to host second annual Pride Week

Pride Week emphasizes the importance of diversity, making the Hoboken community stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to society. The theme of this year’s Pride Week is “Pride without prejudice.”

“We are proud to once again celebrate the contributions of our LGBTQ+ community with our second annual Pride Week,” said Mayor Bhalla. “We are committed to not only enacting policies in Hoboken that promote equality for all residents, but also showcasing events that reflect the diversity of our city. I thank the Hoboken Pride Group for organizing the week’s activities, and encourage all residents to join us.”
