Welcome to the 2014 Utah Pride Festival.
I’m delighted to welcome everyone to this year’s Utah Pride Festival. Now marking its 40th year, the festival is an event that has become bigger and better every year.
As Utah has grown and our communities welcome people with different backgrounds and experiences, I’m constantly reminded of the value of diversity. My goal is for Salt Lake County to be an inclusive community, in which respect is accorded to all.
I’m proud of the progress Salt Lake County has made to advance civil rights and equality for all families and individuals in our community. We’ve seen advances, but there is more work to do.
Congratulations to the organizers and sponsors of the Utah Pride Festival. Thank you for all you do to make the event meaningful and enjoyable to everyone in the LGBT community and beyond.
