Jess Horan has been a NJ Physical Education and Health teacher for the last 13 years. In 2020, Jess and her family were the target of hate and bias at her school. After this incident, and the lack of support, she dove into LGBTQIA+ rights in NJ Schools. From this Jess and her wife Ashleigh created THREADZ with help from Dumont diversity committee. Threadz is a free teen clothing event where kids can shop for free and get free alterations. In 2021, she became active with Bergen County LGBTQ Alliance and is an advisor for Rainbow Cafe in Cresskill, NJ.
BCLA Youth Services provides education, support, resources, and services for young people in the Bergen County area. We foster an inclusive, gender-affirming environment for all. Within 1 year, BCLA has partnered with existing organizations such as Rainbow Cafe to ensure they have the volunteers and support they need to hold these events for LGBTQIA+ teens
