New Jersey State Pride
New Jersey, the Garden State, is the birthplace to many international celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Jon Bon Jovi, Debbie Harry, Gloria Gaynor and many others- including myself, Lady Clover Honey. That is just one of the reasons I was delighted to be a performer at the State of New Jersey’s official Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Trans Pride festival on September 14. The event was held in Mill Hill Park in NJ’s capital city, Trenton. Thousands of people came from all over the central NJ area to take enjoy the festivities which included picnics, vendor and exhibition tables, political speeches by NJ Senators and Congress members and powerhouse musical concert performances. Other performers included singer/songwriter recording artists Lovari, Nhojj, Thomas, Carrie Ashton, The Swippers and physique model/dancer Tass. The event called NJ Capital Rainbow Fest was hosted by Lady Diana and helped to celebrate the rich heritage of LGBT people and their contributions to NJ and to society at large.
