The Utah Pride Festival, to be held June 6–8, 2014, has announced this year’s theme: “Love Equals Love.”
The Utah Pride Festival steering committee chooses a theme each year based on community suggestions, relevant current events and what most resonates with what the Utah Pride Festival wants to bring to the community.
“2014 will be a pivotal year for the LGBTQ movement,” said Megan Risbon, director of events for the Utah Pride Center. “We want Utahns to know that love doesn’t discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity. ‘Love Equals Love’ also means we must love and accept ourselves to be truly whole.”
The festival will again be held at Washington and Library Squares in downtown Salt Lake City with the Utah Pride Parade happening the morning of Sunday, June 8th.
In response to feedback from the community and volunteers, they are also launching a new updated website today, promised to be more mobile friendly, have better organization and more useful information.
Applications for vendors, parade, and awards will be available on January 20, 2014
