The Rainbow Letters
We collected note cards from members of the community at Pride events in Davis and Weber counties in 2021 & 2022.
"Never Hide who you are"
"It can be hard and scary at times, but there are so many people that are here to help you!"
"You don't have to betray your values to be a good Ally"
"It's never the wrong choice to stick up for those you love"
Rainbow Letters is a collection of remarks from attendees of Northern Utah Pride Events, online survey responses, and the Ogden Rainbow Letters exhibit. The main question asked, "What would you like people in the future to know about being a member of the LGBTQ+ community in Northern Utah?" Other questions include:
How do you express your identity?
Have you ever felt different and why?
As a member or ally of the lgbtq+ community in northern Utah, what would you tell your younger self?
What does community mean to you?
What does it mean to belong?
The responses to the questions are collected on index cards and displayed on the first floor of the Stewart Library. We hope the exhibit and powerful responses can share insight into the thoughts of the community located in Davis, Morgan, and Weber counties and inspire future generations.
