Ocean Casino Resort Pride: Celebrating LGBTQIA+ People All Year Long

Published: October 2023

Ocean Casino Resort Pride: Celebrating LGBTQIA+ People All Year Long

In 2023, Ocean Casino Resort painted the Atlantic City Boardwalk red—and every other color of the rainbow. 

As one of the LGBTQIA+ community’s most passionate allies in the Garden State, Ocean Casino Resort is proud to honor New Jersey’s queer community all day, every day, all year long. In fact, there’s always something to celebrate here. Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City proudly stands as the exclusive destination with a flourishing and vibrant LGBTQ+ brand.

Let’s recap some of the year’s most memorable Pride events, highlight some LGBTQ+ causes we love, and get a taste of what’s to come for Pride celebrations in 2024 at Ocean Casino Resort.

An Evening with the Stars: The Drag Showcase

In 2023, Ocean Casino Resort hosted drag royalty not once, but twice. Our March and June Drag Showcases were barnburning bashes celebrating all things glitter and glam. 

Ocean Casino Resort Pride and drag shows are like heels and splits—an irresistible, jaw-dropping combo. Our drag showcases highlighted some of the world’s most exciting performers:

  • Former two-time Miss Paradise, Jolina Jasmine
  • Former Miss Paradise 2022, Crystal Envy
  • Miss Gay America 2023, Tatiyanna Voche’
  • Atlantic City favorite, Morgan Wells
  • Philadelphia legend, Brittany Lynn
  • Former Miss Gay America, Pattaya Hart
  • Jersey City gem, Kimmy Summony
  • East Coast sensation, Stefani Steel

These drag divas lit up the stage and brought down the house at Nola’s Bar & Lounge, creating two unforgettable nights of sheer entertainment. Joined by the likes of resident DJ Carl Michaels and up-and-coming pop sensation Roman, Ocean Casino Resort’s 2023 drag showcases were simply not to be missed. 

Party with a Purpose: Supporting NJ’s LGBTQ+ Organizations

Of course, our 2023 Pride events were celebrations of inspiring resilience, fearless authenticity, and queer joy—but they were also opportunities to support two of the most critical LGBTQIA+ resources in New Jersey. 

Ocean Casino Resort’s 2023 Pride lineup benefited two key organizations:

  1. AtlantiCare’s LGBTQ+ Health Center – Atlantic City’s queer community has unique health needs, and AtlantiCare’s LGBTQ+ Health Center is dedicated to meeting those needs in a safe, inclusive care environment. Supporting positive health outcomes for Garden State queer people and their families, AtlantiCare is making waves along the Atlantic City Boardwalk and beyond. 
  2. Garden State Equality – Garden State Equality is New Jersey’s largest advocacy organization supporting LGBTQ+ people. Their legislative campaigns, educational support, and bevy of resources support one of NJ’s most critical communities. Ocean Casino Resort takes great pride in backing their mission. Additionally, we actively participate in the annual Equality Walk, GSE's primary community fundraiser, which has raised over $100,000.

In 2023, we wanted to do more than celebrate the queer community—so we partied with purpose.

Celebrating Pride 24/7/365

At Ocean Casino Resort, Pride doesn’t end in June. We host inclusive celebrations and events all year long, and there’s truly something for everyone here.
