Pride Walk

June 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Pride Walk will meet up at the Sculpture Park and proceed down Locust to the Iowa State Capitol. The Pride Walk is intended to open Pride Month by highlighting the work that still needs to be done. This peaceful protest walk brings light the fact that out of 193 countries in the world, there are still 70 countries where being LGBTQ+ is against the law. That is 1/3 of the world.

Brief speeches will be made before the walk and end of the walk by representatives from Iowa Safe Schools, the Interfaith Alliance, the LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, and Capital City Pride. Gather at the park at 3:00pm and the walk begins at 3:30pm. (The Walk will be escorted by the Des Moines Police to ensure all participants are protected from traffic on Locust and intersecting streets.)

Following the Pride Walk, everyone is invited to hang out at SingleSpeed Brewing (303 Scott Ave, Des Moines, IA 50309) where they will be officially launching their Pride Brew.
