June 25, 2022 marks the 39th anniversary of the Lesbian and Gay Pride March and Celebration in Burlington. The Vermont Agency of Historic Preservation has forged an Historic Marker to commemorate the courage of the original marchers and the many in our State who have sustained our ongoing movement that evolve into the vibrant LGBTQ+ communities we see throughout our state.
This event was organized by some of the original celebration organizers. The Pride Center of Vermont is sponsoring the Historic marker installation with a celebration in City Hall Park, in Burlington, on June 26, 2022 at 2pm.Please join us to celebrate this important event.
We want to know if you attended the original event. Can you remember who else was there? Do you have any photos or memorabilia?
Burlington City Hall will be displaying Vermont Folklife Center’s Pride 1983
exhibit throughout the month of June.
The exhibit will be open in City Hall from 1pm-4pm on Sunday, June 26th
