Silverthorne prepares for Pride Month celebrations, featuring drag show with local officials

Silverthorne will have its first series of Pride Month events this weekend to celebrate LGBTQ members of the community as part of the county’s two-day celebration. Starting on Thursday, local volunteers and artists began painting the new Pride Month-themed mural that will be on the bike path along the Blue River. Like the river directly next to it, the mural’s two winding rainbow features twist down the bike path with the Progress Pride Flag — the common six-color rainbow flag with an incorporated chevron to represent minorities, trans people, and those living and killed by AIDS — capping the ends. Local artist Andy Moran, who painted the murals in Frisco last year, began arriving to work on the mural at 8 a.m. each day to work on it. On Saturday, visitors are invited to lay their handprints leading to the mural, adding a community connection to the piece, he said.
