Each year Jay Lassiter of InsiderNJ.com releases a list that includes the most influential LGBTQ+political forces in the state. This year was it's most eclectic, featuring advocates from various domains and even included rising hip-hop artist and activist Prince Derek Doll.
Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ), had this to say about the people on this list:
“From advocacy to government service to the private sector, these individuals have distinguished themselves as leaders in our state’s vibrant LGBTQIA+ community,” Governor Murphy said. “My Administration will continue to work closely with all honorees to build a stronger, fairer, and more inclusive New Jersey.”
"It’s a privilege to use my platform to amplify Queer voices in places we aren’t typically heard and to increase our presence in places of which we aren’t typically invited," Prince Derek said. "Thanks to those who nominated me, thank you Insider NJ and Jay Lassiter for recognizing my efforts, thank you to my amazingly supportive partner Kitab Rollins, and congratulations to all of the other phenomenal power players both on and off the list"
