Event Overview : This one-time event is necessitated by COVID-19, and the traditional March and Rally will be back in 2022. In the past the Utah Pride Center has proudly hosted and organized the “Dyke March”, “Trans March” and the “Pride March and Rally”, which have all provided a space and opportunity to celebrate, recognize and give voice to our Lesbian, Dyke, Trans, Bi, Pansexual, Queer BIPOC and Non-Binary communities. Join us at the Utah State Capitol, for the Rainbow March and Rally, on Sunday June 6th at 9:30am. This year the Rainbow Rally and March will be one of the focal points of our week. We will “Raise Our Voices” in support of all of these communities again, as we, Utah’s LGBTQ+ community comes together, to support of each other, and celebrate our roots and history.
March Details :Starting at 300 North State Street, we will carry the 200’ rainbow flag and one balloon arch. The flag and balloon arch will march down State Street and meet the next balloon arch, and then the next balloon arch and the next until we have joined together to create a massive balloon arch of over 1000 balloons!
