The City of Salem will raise the Pride flag in partnership with LGBTQIA+ community leaders, advocates, activists, and allies on June 1st at noon in Riley Plaza. The event is open to all. Pride Month is an opportunity to memorialize members of the LGBTQIA+ community who have been lost and who are still dying or living in peril, to reaffirm Salem’s diversity, acceptance, and inclusion of people of all identities, and to acknowledge and support the ongoing fight for full equality and freedom from discrimination. Salem raises the Pride flags each June as an affirmation of our shared humanity and the value of respecting and celebrating each person’s own identity.
