Duluth Superior Pride Festival to Honor Anniversary of Stonewall

Created: August 27, 2019 09:18 AM

The Duluth Superior Pride Festival is coming up this weekend and there are plenty of events going on throughout the Twin Ports to show your pride. 


Jodi Broadwell, who is a committee member, said she is involved in planning two different events including a film screening of a documentary called "From Selma to Stonewall: Are we there yet?"

The showing of this film is in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots that happened in 1969.

"It wasn't the first uprising event around LGBTQ rights, but it was one of the major stepping stones for current activists to sort of kick-off those LGBTQ rights," Broadwell said.  "After 50 years when we're still experiencing injustices in our community, it's just a time to reflect back on how far we've come and then look at where we're at now and also sort of inspire new activists and see where we're heading."  

The other event she's involved with is the art exhibition.  She said they have 11 local artists that are doing a group exhibition.  They put on a fun reception with the help of Zeitgeist. 

Other events include the Mayor's reception on Thursday, parties at The Flame and The Main, the festival at Bayfront on Saturday, and the parade on Sunday.
