Earlier today the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples can legally marry nationwide. It’s a historic day for LGBT rights and for full equality for all Americans. There are many Jersey City community activists and supporters that have worked tirelessly on this issue through the years. We as a community should be proud and grateful for their efforts as well as our shared contributions as a local community to this national change. Know that JCI is proud to stand with you and celebrate this victory. What an amazing way to end pride month and to kick off NYC Pride’s weekend festivities. Enjoy and be proud Jersey City!
