The story of the fight for LGBTQ+ equality is linked to this music, which evokes the struggles,heartache,and liberation of queer lives then and now.

Featuring Kevin Smith Kirkwood (Kinky Boots) and NYC cabaret-artist, Amy Jo Jackson,with musical direction by Brian J. NashPride Anthems is a show for all ages to come together in song and celebration of where the LGBTQ+ community has come from and how far it has come since Stonewall!

    Come early at 7pm for a screening of the documentary “La Gatita: Tales From The Litterbox," which centers the QTPOC-led, genderqueer, DIY drag collective La Gatita, based in New Brunswick, NJ.

The documentary features numerous stellar performances from Elizabeth New Jersey, Mx. Media, and Ms. Acid Refluxxx, as well as interviews with them, other La Gatita progenitors, and the local community that supports the movement. This project and its drag event originally premiered on December 15, 2023, and is the sixth-year continuation of the Trueselves trans and T+ historical project, in partnership with coLAB Arts and the Pride Center of New Jersey. (The run time of the documentary is 40 minutes.)
