Pride Proclamation with the Gilbert Baker Foundation


Friday June 03, 2022


11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Town Hall
260 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA 02657


On June 3rd at 3PM the Provincetown Business Guild will host a “Pride Proclamation” on the East Lawn of Town Hall in partnership with The Gilbert Baker Foundation, to honor both Gilbert Baker – the creator of the original Pride flag – and all subsequent creators of significant Pride Flags.

At this free, community-focused event, Jay Blotcher, veteran LGBT journalist & activist and volunteer publicist for the founding chapters of ACT UP & Queer Nation, and board member of The Gilbert Baker Foundation, will lead our Proclamation  and speak to the installation of myriad Community Pride flags that will reside on the East Lawn all Pride Weekend, June 3-5 from 9-5PM, entitled IN THEIR OWN VOICES.

“In this exhibit IN THEIR OWN VOICES, we asked the creators of some of the most significant Pride Flags to share the history, inspiration for, and meaning of their creations.

All of these flags are beautiful and deserve to be flying high, whether at a protest march or on your front porch. We at the Gilbert Baker Foundation are proud that they were all born of the original Rainbow Flag.”

Charles Beal
President of the Gilbert Baker Foundation
