Johnson County Iowa Proclaimed June 2017 as Pride Month!

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors kicked off Pride Month with the following proclamation:
PROCLAMATION
PRIDE MONTH

JUNE 2017

Whereas, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people across the nation celebrate pride in their culture and community in the month of June; and

Whereas, the whole community is strengthened and enhanced through the contributions of all its diverse citizens; and

Whereas, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in Johnson County will celebrate Pride Month in June with a picnic in Upper City Park on Friday, June 16, 2017, at 6:00 PM, and a parade and festival on Saturday, June 17, 2017 starting at noon in the Iowa City Pedestrian Mall. Visit faceook.com/iowacitypride for more information on these and other Pride month events.

Now, therefore, be it resolved that we, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, do hereby proclaim the moth of June 2017 to be: 


PRIDE MONTH

and encourage Johnson County residents to recognize the many contributions that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals and communities have made to our County.
It appears that it was a unanimous vote by the BOS. Happy Pride Month!
