Somerset County Democratic LGBT Caucus encourages municipalities to celebrate National Pride Month

Somerset County Democratic Chair Peg Schaffer has been appointed Interim Vice Chair of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, after Vice Chair Lizette Delgado-Polanco stepped down from the position.

The Somerset County Democratic LGBT Caucus is once again encouraging Somerset County municipalities to celebrate National Pride Month this June, and is offering free Rainbow Pride Flags for those localities who have yet to procure their own.

Somerville, NJ – In 2019 the Somerset County Democratic LGBT Caucus (Caucus) offered to supply municipalities, government offices and houses of worship a Rainbow Pride Flag to be displayed in celebration of National Pride Month during June.  The Caucus donated flags to Bernardsville, Bound Brook, Franklin Township, Montgomery, North Plainfield, Peapack / Gladstone, Rocky Hill, South Bound Brook and Watchung along with 2 houses of worship.

Unfortunately, In the wake of COVID-19 this year many Pride celebrations have been postponed or canceled.  While there may not be an official flag raising ceremony in each municipality this year, there is still an opportunity for the town to show its pride and hoist the flag.

For those municipalities, government offices, or houses of worship who would like to display a Rainbow Pride Flag during the June festivities and still need a flag, the Somerset County Democratic LGBT Caucus would like to donate one.

“So many planned National Pride Month celebrations have been canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so it is more important than ever that our communities take the lead in celebrating this year,” said Chairperson Charles Eader. “It’s the strong diversity and sense of community is what makes Somerset County strong.  For National Pride Month, let’s celebrate those strengths, our LGBTQ+ community, and show NJ why it is so great to live in Somerset County.”
