Celebrating Pride month in June
The City of Bloomington will recognize Pride Month in June with a proclamation from the City Council. Pride flags will fly at Civic Plaza and City Public Works facilities for two weeks during the month of June.
City staff is also beginning to plan for 2022 Pride celebrations. Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Twin Cities Pride. The City is partnering with Hennepin County Library and Artistry to plan an art exhibit in the Inez Greenberg Gallery. Visit blm.mn/letstalk to vote on the exhibit theme.
Those with a personal story to tell about their relationship to the LGBTQIA+ community can share their stories on blm.mn/letstalk. After you submit a story, you’ll be able to see it on the message board along with other submitted stories.
“The goal of asking people to share their stories is to show that there is a range of experience here in Bloomington,” Community Outreach and Engagement Coordinator Amanda Crombie said. “It’s about sharing the human story and building connections.”
