Tens of thousands of Utahns gathered and marched through downtown Salt Lake City on Sunday to close out Utah’s Pride Week.Pride Week is a time dedicated to members of the LGBTQ+ community and according to FOX 13, more than 20,000 people participated in the “Rainbow March & Rally.” Even with that massive crowd, Jonathan Folk with the Utah Pride Center said they had to scale down the event due to the pandemic. He said they wanted to bring back how Pride started because they “couldn’t have food vendors and floats and have a super large gathering.”

 

Folk said the Pride Center is already starting to plan for next year’s Pride Week with hopes that normal crowds can gather by then.
