2023 Theme = Ruby: 40 Years of Fabulous
We are thrilled to announce the theme for this year’s momentous celebration: “Ruby: 40 Years of Fabulous”! As we commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Vermont’s first Pride march, the theme “Ruby” symbolizes not only the milestone of our journey but also the enduring passion, strength, and love that have sustained our LGBTQIA+ community.
Join us on Sunday, September 10th in downtown Burlington, as we embrace the vibrant spirit of “Ruby” and reflect on the remarkable progress we have made as a community. Amidst the complexities of the political landscape we are living in and the challenges that we face, this celebration is an opportunity to come together, share love, and celebrate our collective strength.
With “Ruby: 40 Years of Fabulous” as our guide, we invite you to express yourselves with creativity and pride. Grab your Kinky Boots and your ruby red slippers because we’re ready to march! Together, let’s shine bright like the precious gemstone, igniting the streets with the energy of love, unity, and authenticity.
As we look back on our history and the brave individuals who came together for this movement 40 years ago, we also look forward with hope and determination for a future where love and acceptance prevail. We are excited to celebrate with you and showcase the true essence of our community!
