This year, Borgata was a proud sponsor of Garden State Equality’s 2020 Equality Ball and their month-long 2020 Virtual Equality Walk. The “Equality Ball-ish 2020” took place on October 15 at The Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The event was a socially-distant evening that celebrated the work that Garden State Equality does for the LGBTQ+ community in New Jersey and beyond.
Additionally, the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, the Equality Walk, is taking place virtually in 2020. Garden State Equality urges participants to plan their own Equality Walk route throughout the Month of October and post photos to social media, using the hashtag #EqualityWalk. Fund raised throughout the month will be used to support Garden State Equality’s work in education, advocacy, and healthcare.
Established in 2004, Garden State Equality (GSE) is the largest LGBTQ advocacy organization in New Jersey and one of the most successful statewide civil rights organization for the LGBTQ community in the nation. Their services include advocacy, policy work, and trainings. Find out more about them here.
