The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven Fulop, Office of The Municipal Council, Office of the Cultural Affairs and the Mayor’s LGBTQ+ Taskforce were honored to present the 3rd Trans Pride Flag Raising for Transgender Day of Visibility held on Friday, March 31, 2023.

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, the City of Jersey City aims to provide equal opportunity to all of its diverse employees, residents, and businesses. In support of this aim, the Mayor’s Taskforce on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Equality, together with other City officials held a meeting with the Legislative Counsel for State and Municipal Advocacy of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) on April 26, 2013.

 The Human Rights Campaign (HRC)  is the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ+ individuals. This meeting demonstrated the City’s continued partnership in the advancement of Jersey City’s LGBTQ+ related programs.

 The transgender community, organizations, and individuals are widely represented by the transgender pride flag that consists of five horizontal stripes.  Two light blue which is the traditional color for baby boys, two pink for girls, with a white stripe in the center for those who are transitioning, who feel they have a neutral gender or no gender, and those who are intersex. The flag was designed by American trans woman Monica Helms in 1999.
