Iowa City Pride Week 2016 kicked off this Monday with the Big Gay Bar Crawl and continues into the weekend with a parade, festival and multiple performances.

In light of the tragic deaths and injuries that occurred Sunday morning at Orlando’s Pulse night club, free counseling will be provided during the Iowa City Pride Festival. Two Crisis Center of Johnson County counselors will be available this Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Ped Mall.

Join the LGBTQ community and its supporters in the remaining public celebrations!
