Save the Date for the Utah Pride Road Rally
The first annual Utah Pride Road Rally is coming to Salt Lake City on National Coming Out Day, October 11th, 2020
[Salt Lake City, UT – August 13th, 2020] – Come celebrate with us on Coming Out Day for the first annual Pride Road Rally where everyone is invited to come out to drag Main!
Due to the pandemic the Utah Pride Center is getting creative this year to keep the center’s life-saving programs and services available to the LGBTQ+ community. Keeping social distancing and state guidelines in mind, the Utah Pride Center has been given authorization by Salt Lake City and the Utah Health Department to organize PRIDE 2.0.
Rather than decorated floats and tens of thousands of people packed into 7 blocks downtown, everyone in our community is invited to decorate their cars and join in the Road Rally on a long stretch of Main Street. If you cannot join in your vehicle, you can watch the live stream on our website. This will allow people to join in on the fun safely.
“Dragging main is an activity that has been passed down through the generations where people get in their cars, drive down main street and meet people. We want to bring that back and give you a chance to show your pride while doing it. From youth to elderly, there are LGBTQ+ people at risk and need our support. Help us help them,” said Mona Stevens, Utah Pride Center Board Chair.
More details on the event will be available in the coming weeks. We ask everyone to save the date and join us on National Coming Out Day, October 11th. Look to our website for sponsorship opportunities.
The Utah Pride Center unites, empowers and celebrates Utah’s diverse LGBTQ+ community by providing a safe and welcoming space for education, partnerships, services and events which advance our collective health, wellness and success.
