Tickets are 80 percent tax-deductible and proceeds will benefit both the North Jersey Pride Festival and RAD Kids, NJP's social support network for families of transgender and gender-fluid youth, which connects parents and youth with other “RAD Families” as they navigate growing into their authentic selves. 

Since its launch in 2015, RAD Kids has seen attendance at events grow exponentially, with families coming from all over North Jersey, including Essex, Sussex, Bergen, Middlesex and Hudson counties. Some of the feedback we've received from our families:

“RAD Kids is a safe place to land no matter where you are on this journey of raising a transgender or gender creative kid. It's a community that truly meets folks where they are and says it's okay to not fit into the world's boxes! That's something that's not easy to find and is quite literally life saving to many trans and gender creative youth and their families." — Jamie, mother of 11 year-old child

“RAD kids has offered my family a place to gain greater support and knowledge for the road ahead. For my child, RAD Kids provides a place to see other kids like him and to have fun.  Sometimes after a RAD kids hangout, on the drive home, we are able to have some of the most open and honest conversations about the challenges and pride that comes with being a transgender, non binary or gender creative kid." — Mary, parent of 8 year-old child
