Utahns observe Gay Pride Day with S.L. workshops, parade

Marchers carry a 300-foot rainbow banner from the Utah Capitol to the Salt Lake City-County Building during a parade observing Gay Pride Day on Sunday. The annual demonstration was the culmination of a three-day event, the Intermountain Conference on Homosexuality. On Saturday, workshops at the Little America Hotel covered health issues, rights and responsibilities of same-sex relationships. Gay Pride celebrations are not held on the same day across the country. Sunday's big parade on New York City's Fifth Avenue was to mark Puerto Rican Day, while the Gay Pride Parade in that city is scheduled for Sunday, June 27.
