Grand Flag March Ringling Bridge

Updated: 6 days ago

In response to the news that Florida would not be lighting its bridges – including the John Ringling Bridge in Sarasota – in rainbow colors for Pride Month that year, LGBTQ+ advocacy group Project Pride SRQ (PPSRQ) planned to “light the bridge” its way: with the march of its Grand Flag over the Ringling Bridge. This event took place on Saturday, June 29 at 9 a.m. PPSRQ’s Grand Flag is the largest progressive Pride flag in the country, at more than 700 feet long.

Event organizers invited the community to participate in a stunning display of unity and pride as walkers lit up the bridge with their colorful presence. The vibrant celebration, showcasing the strength and diversity of the community, started on the south end of the bridge.
