PHOTOS: City of Auburn says ‘Love is love…’ as Pride Flag raised above City Hall


On Monday, June 3, 2024, the City of Auburn hosted a Pride Flag Raising Ceremony at City Hall.

This event kicked off Pride Month, a celebration of love, diversity, acceptance, and unashamed self-pride.


“Love is love is love is love is love is love is love. Happy #Pride, Auburn” the city said in a statement.

Mayor Nancy Backus and her daughter, Lucky, raised the LGBTQ+ pride flag at city hall for the first time in 2020.

“In 2020, raising the Pride Flag was breaking new ground in Auburn, but I wish we would have begun the tradition a few years earlier and not just a proclamation,” Backus told The Auburn Examiner.

The LGBTQ pride flag was first created in 1978 by Gilbert Baker at the request of San Fransisco Mayor Harvey Milk.


“A Rainbow Flag was a conscious choice, natural and necessary,” Baker said. “The rainbow came from earliest recorded history as a symbol of hope.”
