Iowa City residents are able to pick up a “Pride sign” at city hall or at the public library in preparation for “Pride month.”

The Office of Equity and Human Rights has the signs available for free.

“The annual Pride celebration began as a collective protest advocating for the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities,” said a release from the city. “And freedom in expressing gender identity. The national tradition of celebrating Pride in June is a tribute to the Stonewall Uprising of June 1969, which are remembered as the launch of the modern LGBTQ+ civil rights movement.”

Interesting use of government.
