It's More Than Gay Pride...


Today the MU LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Resource Center sponsored the annual Pride Parade. They invited people to meet at Circle Fountain outside the MU Student Center, and encouraged people to bring a poster, a message, a friend, or just yourself! 

The goal was to show pride and support of all Tigers by marching through campus.

Dakota Botts, Triangle Coalition, the main student LGBTQ group on campus, President,  said one of the main significant points of the parade is that everyone should be treated with equality. 

The video below highlights some of the pride preparation. Students were decorating "floats," raising flags, and showing their pride.
