Two Wasatch Back cities are celebrating June as Pride Month by displaying banners on their Main Streets.
The Park City Council passed a resolution in their May meeting declaring June as Pride Month in the city to increase “awareness and acknowledgment of the LGBTQ+ community by celebrating equality, inclusion, and empowerment for every member of Park City’s LGBTQ+ community.”
“Park City has a dedicated history of creating and supporting policies and programs that stand against discrimination and promote equality and opportunity for all members of the LGBTQ+ community,” the resolution states. “Pride Month is a reminder of how much we have to celebrate and should prompt us to never let up in our efforts to ensure full equality, inclusion, and empowerment for every member of our LGBTQ+ community.”
Park City will hang their rainbow-themed “Love Where You Live” banners along Main Street.
Heber City also installed their banners that caused a bit of controversy last year. The banners have rainbow flag stripes over snow-capped mountains with “Pride on the Wasatch Back.”
