Ribbons of Pride event brings some color to downtown Salisbury

 

 

SALISBURY, Md. – In honor of Pride month, PFLAG held a Ribbons of Pride Art installation event in Salisbury. We’re told the event was funded in part by a grant from Salisbury University’s Fulton Public Humanities Program.

Community members and members of the LGBTQ+ community gathered to write positive messages of support and names of loved ones on colorful ribbons.
The event included music, refreshments, stickers, flags and much more. All ages, young and old came out to support their efforts.

One person who was at the event tells 47 ABC, she has many family member that are apart of the LGBTQ+ community. She says she feels like it’s her responsibility to not only participate, but to be an ally for them. “Well I’m 67 years old and so I’ve seen things change a lot over the years,” says LGBTQ+ ally, Sharon Roeble. She adds, “I’d like to see more people in the community, regardless of their orientation, regardless of what their interests or their political beliefs. They need to come out here and support all of friends and neighbors.”

The display will be up in downtown Salisbury for the entire month of June.
