Pride Month 2020 is finally here and, although we love to support our LGBTQ+ community all year long, we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate a little extra this month. Even though the world is still a bit closed down, there are still tons of virtual happenings throughout the month of June that you and your friends can attend in celebration and support of the LGBTQ+ community. To make it easier for you, we’ve created this list of all the virtual Pride celebrations going on in Hoboken, Jersey City, and beyond this month.
