Downtown Rock Springs Believes In Progress


EVERYONE is welcome

June is Pride Month - Pride Month commemorates and celebrates LGBTQ activism and culture through the years.

The celebration gives the world a chance to discover the accomplishments that the LGBTQ+ community have made; in fact, many have changed the world. It's important to recognize the many positive contributions the LGBTQ+ community have made to society.

They've made a difference in activism, business, dance, film, theater, government, television, military, music, religion, science, sports and literature.



Traditionally, in many cities, there have been parades, protests, drag performances, live theater and memorials. 

Locals and visitors will notice the colors of the rainbow throughout Downtown for the first time this year. As allies of the LGBTQ+ community (or as part of the LGBTQ+ community), about a dozen businesses will hang the new "Progress Flag."   


Did you know each color represents something? Here is a break-down:  

Red - Life

Orange - Healing

Yellow - Sunlight

Green - Nature

Blue - Harmony

Purple - Spirit

The black and brown stripes represent people of color. Baby blue, pink and white represent trans individuals in its design.



On June 10, 2021, Wyoming Equality will present the movie "Kinky Boots" at the Broadway Theater in conjunction with Sweetwater Pride. Admission is only $5 and a cash bar will be available, featuring a special cocktail. Doors open at 6 pm and the movie starts at 7 pm. 

We Welcome Everyone -  It's no secret that Downtown Rock Springs is "LGBTQ-friendly." Locals and visitors can feel safe and welcome in our community; after all, Wyoming is the State of Equality.  

You don't need to travel to big cities to find a place to be yourselves and relax. Visit Downtown Rock Springs.
