In celebration of Pride Month, Boulder’s popular Pearl Street Mall proudly displayed rainbow flags in local shops. Three Pearl Street crosswalks were painted with rainbow colors. I had the opportunity to go with my daughters, use the painted crosswalks, listen to the different speakers as they raised the first pride flag next to the state and federal flags.
“The rainbow has become a symbol of universal love and equality for all, as well as the hard-fought struggles that have occurred in the LGBTQ+ movement over decades. We are delighted to be a part of this effort to showcase Boulder’s pride,” said Mardi Moore, executive director of Out Boulder. “The partners who are working with us to make this happen are amazing. It is truly a community effort.”
