13 Jun Arbella color guard to march in the North Shore Pride parade June 30, 2012
Drum Corps didn’t always celebrate diversity
I think we can all remember back to times in our youth where boys weren’t allowed in color guard (unless it was Madison Scouts or the Cavies), and I’ve even heard stories of reverse situations, of how girls weren’t welcome in hornlines. Whether it was sexism, elitism, gay-ism – no matter how you slice it, it was discrimination.
Thank goodness we live in different times!
June is LGBT awareness month. You may have noticed the rainbow flags covering businesses and homes in Salem. We are pleased to be a part of the festivities!
On June 30th, the very first North Shore Pride parade is being hosted in Salem and Arbella is proud to say our color guard will be marching, right up front, festooned with rainbow flags!
