Come stand with us! Join organizers and attendees of the original Pride in Vermont in 1983, alongside members of the LGBTQ+ community in Vermont across generations, as we unveil a Historical Marker which will permanently commemorate and honor Pride 1983 as an important historical event in the state. This event will feature speakers from the Pride 1983 organizing group and attendees, as well as guests from younger generations reflecting on how this important event acted as a catalyst for a movement that has evolved into the vibrant LGBTQ+ communities we see today.
