This is a terrible situation that happens way too often in Trenton for so many reasons. Thankfully, Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson was able to recieve the care she needed.

Hopefully, our Assemblywoman's experience and self-advocacy will help bring some change and permanent improvements to medical care and services in Trenton.

This is some great news just before Christmas! We are so proud of the Republican legislators (and Democrats) who voted for this Marriage Equality legislation.

We also graciously thank GOP Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield and Assemblyman Ryan Peters for co-sponsoring this bill which will ensure that all New Jerseyans can get married and have their marriages legally recognized by our state government. Voting for a bill is great, but co-sponsoring a bill is even better!

Republicans make LGBT history -

Well done gentlemen. Your accomplishment proves that the LGBT Republicans can be victorious and work towards full acceptance

Garden State Equality wants to shed light on the unique story of Republicans Joseph DeIorio and Thos Shipley; a gay couple serving local office together in Roselle Park, NJ. In 2015, Thos Shipley made Roselle Park history twice becoming the first African American AND first openly gay person to be elected to Borough Council. Two years later, his husband former Roselle Park Mayor Joe DeIorio received the approval of voters to be elected to a 3-year term. The pair acknowledges Roselle Park’s openness and acceptance as a key factor in their victories. GSE applauds you, Joe and Thos!

We thank Governor Chris Christie for signing these protections for transgender Americans into law.

We thank Governor Chris Christie for signing these protections for transgender Americans into law.

Under the law, schools will be told they cannot force transgender students to use bathrooms or locker rooms that conflict with their gender identity.
