Cedar Rapids Gazette Coverage of Inaugural Pride Parade

CEDAR RAPIDS — As rainbows cascaded down NewBo’s Third Street SE, LGBTQ attendees on sidewalks Saturday afternoon saw a new sight in Cedar Rapids: a long-awaited Pride parade.

As convertibles and floats were propelled south by the cheers of crowds, the passing vehicles echoed back a joy unfamiliar to many seeing Pride for the first time in Cedar Rapids: a reflection of their own voice through signs of encouragement and speakers blasting anthems of LGBTQ empowerment.

School of Rock Cedar Rapids / Marion was proud to participate in this event. Check out Cedar Rapids Gazette's coverage of the inaugural Pride Parade, including a picture of Jack on drums!
