We are celebrating our LGBTQ+ community during Takoma Pride Day on Sunday, June 12, 2022. This year’s theme is Just Say Gay. On Laurel Ave, outside of the Takoma Park Farmers Market, visitors are encouraged to take pics at the Just Say Gay rainbow flower selfie station and post with the tag #JUSTSAYGAYTKPK! Let’s send Florida a message of acceptance. Special thanks to Park Florist.
Visitors are also welcome to share messages of Pride on Laurel Avenue where there will be chalk available in the closed street. Takoma Park’s existing rainbow crosswalks are in place on Laurel Ave celebrating diversity and acceptance every day!
