Protecting the Bill of Rights in Utah since 1958

The ACLU Was “Out For Freedom!” at the Utah Pride Parade & Festival

07 June 2015 Published in Past Events

ACLUgroup1We had a blast walking in the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 7, thanks to all of our supporters who joined us to celebrate. Check out our photos!

We will meet downtown at 9 am. Our group number is RED 114 - ACLU. We will be staged about halfway between 300 South and 400 South on 400 East. We should be on the East side of the street. The parade will begin around 10 am and continue west on 200 South to 200 West. We should be done by 11:30. 

On the day of the parade, please come in comfortable walking shoes and have sunscreen, water and snacks. Please do not bring any animals. Only service animals are permitted and you will have to sign a special waiver form with the parade organizers to walk. Please review the Parade Guidelines

We are OUT FOR FREEDOM!

Wow! What a year it has been since the last Pride Parade. (Check out these awesome photos of the 2014 Utah Pride Parade!) At that time we had just won a huge victory with a judge ordering Utah to recognize the validity of over 1,000 marriages for same-sex couples. Since then we have won the full freedom to marry for all couples in the state, and this past legislative session we gained important protections for LGBTQ people in employment and housing.

Now we are ready to celebrate freedom! Come show your ACLU pride by marching with us in the Utah Pride Parade on Sunday, June 7, in downtown Salt Lake City. It is going to be a party like we have never experienced before.
