Iowa Pride

Little Village June 2009 Civil Rights timeline.png

The June 2009 issue of Iowa City's arts and culture magazine, Little Village, celebrated Pride month by covering LGBTQ+ lives affected by the then-recent Iowa Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage. Among these features was a Iowa Civil Rights timeline written by Andrew Sherburne with an introduction by Melody Dworak. The timeline highlights years Iowans gained legal protections against various kinds of discrimination. 

The entire June 2009 issue can be downloaded from the University of Iowa Libraries institutional repository. 

Little Village has been in print since 2001 and its current publisher is Matthew Steele. Reproduction inquiries can be emailed to
