New Jersey: 1992. 11” x 8½”. Single leaf flier printed one side. Fine.
This flier advertised New Jersey's first annual Gay Pride Parade which was held in Asbury Park in June 1992. It hailed the theme, “Visible, Equal, Proud,” and acknowledging the presence of the LGBTQ community as part of the essential makeup of the general population. According to David Morris, president of the Gay Activist Alliance in Morris County, they encompassed nearly ten percent of the community in New Jersey, and it was about time they celebrated. Several thousand people marched in this first time event. One year later, June was declared Gay Pride Month by the Governor Florio.
