Pride week ends in Utah with rally, march in Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. — More than 20,000 people marched through downtown Salt Lake City over the weekend to close out Pride week in Utah.

Utah Pride Center Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Foulk said it was “beautiful” to see everyone gathered at the “Rainbow March & Rally” again after events were canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, KSTU-TV reported.

“We really wanted to get back to how Pride started,” Foulk said. “Pride started as a protest and a rally and a march, and that’s what we brought back for this year specifically because we couldn’t have food vendors and floats and have a super large gathering.”

Planning has already started for next year, with hopes that more people can attend, Foulk said.
