Even though the Stonewall Uprising 50 years ago inspired much positive change, reality continues to see LGBTQ individuals commit suicide, be murdered and suffer serious hate crimes. In response, on October 3, 2013, the Newark LGBTQ Community Center opened its doors. Our mission to create a safe space went into full gear.
