The City of Morro Bay will raise the Rainbow Pride Flag at City Hall throughout the month of June in recognition of LGBTQ+ Pride Month.

The decision to raise the Pride Flag stems from a resolution approved by the City Council of Morro Bay on November 22, 2022. The resolution highlights the “City’s commitment to supporting diversity, inclusivity, equity and respect in our City. It acknowledges the diverse and valuable contributions made by LGBTQ+ residents, students, employees, and business owners in the City.”

The Rainbow Pride Flag, also known as the LGBTQ+ Pride Flag or Gay Pride Flag, has been a symbol of LGBTQ+ pride and social movements since the 1970s. By raising the flag, the City of Morro Bay aims to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all residents and visitors.

In June 2022, the City Council declared June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Pride Month, representing Morro Bay’s celebration of diversity and support for the LGBTQ+ community. This year, the City takes another step forward by officially establishing the Rainbow Pride Flag as a commemorative flag of Morro Bay. The flag will be flown throughout June to symbolize the City’s recognition of LGBTQ+ Pride Month and symbolizes the City’s celebration of diversity and support for the LGBTQ+ community.
