Pride Month in Boise

June is Pride Month and here at the City of Boise, we not only welcome our LGBTQ friends and neighbors, we see them as valued members of the community that help make Boise the most livable city in the country.

As you may have seen downtown, the city is displaying its support for Pride in new ways this year: #iamboise Pride Banners. Boise City Council President Lauren McLean came up with the idea of the banners as a way to show Boise's Pride throughout downtown. One banner was signed by the mayor, members of council, representatives of LGBTQ organizations and state legislators and will be in the LGBTQ archive at Boise State.

The Special Events Team with the City of Boise has been working tirelessly with the organizers of Pride Fest for several months to ensure all events run smoothly. It is our hope that this year's Pride Fest is the most successful year yet.

Today, the Pride flag was raised at City Hall where it will remain throughout Pride Festival, a very visible sign of the city's support of the LGBTQ community. Boise has always and will continue to ensure we are a welcoming city who not only values its residents, regardless of their backgrounds, but also works every day to ensure that our residents can feel a sense of pride in their city and their community. We encourage all citizens of Boise to enjoy many of the activities taking place at Boise Pride Fest and to have a fun and safe weekend.
