June is Pride month
Throughout June, the City of Bloomington will recognize pride month with several activities to support the LGBTQIA+ community
- During the June 3 council meeting, a proclamation will be read and accepted by a Kennedy student and member of the Gay Straight Alliance and Assistant Principle.
- Wear rainbow colors and show your support for your LGBTQIA co-workers, family and friends throughout the month of June.
- The City is hosting a booth at the Twin Cities Pride Festival June 22 – 23, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. This is a unique opportunity for Bloomington to show its pride as a local governmental organization. Visit the City’s booth, located at Quorum Village (Orange area) O76 in Loring Park, between Oak Grove Street and Willow Street, in downtown Minneapolis.
- June 17 - 24 you'll see Bloomington facilities flying rainbow flags to celebrate the contributions of members of the LGBTQIA community and honor the injustices and fight the community makes for equality.
The Pride movement is celebrating a milestone in LGBTQIA+ community awareness. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall event in Greenwich Village, New York, which became a catalyst for the gay rights movement that spread worldwide.
