Brian Holland Legacy Day – November 9, 2024

Brian Holland Legacy Day is observed on November 9 every year and honors the life and impact of a truly remarkable man. Holland was a strong community leader, a beyond professional industry man, a real confidant, and a master of guidance and positivity, known because of his never-ending love, solid mentoring abilities, easiness in teaching, and far-reaching kindness. He was the cornerstone of a tight community that has set to keep moving forward, honoring his work. Holland’s legacy inspires us all every day to be better versions of ourselves and to never forget to laugh.

History of Brian Holland Legacy Day

Brian Holland is the founder of the Brian Holland Legacy Foundation, a community focused on providing support in three major areas of social impact: L.G.B.T.Q.+ equality and support, arts and education, and fostering community. Holland was a proud gay man and was deeply involved in the well-being of the L.G.B.T.Q.+ community. Moreover, Holland was a teacher, and as such, he had an innate ability to see the very best and true potential of people.

Holland and his family are lifelong Monmouth County natives who donated a lot of their time and effort to Asbury Park. He was a deeply loved person and his friends say that he was as selfless as can be, someone who would sacrifice his time, energy, and money to charitable causes all across the state of New Jersey.

He also advocated for those whose voice wasn’t loud enough to reach the platforms that could really make a difference. In meetings, conversations, discussions, and events, Holland spoke up for those who could not speak for themselves. He forced everyone around him to see that the world in which we live is not a ‘this or that’ sort of thing, but rather a beautiful collection of colorful moments that all of us should slow down to enjoy. Since 2019, the Brian Holland Legacy Day recognizes this wonderful man and shines a light on the foundation itself, honoring its ongoing work.
