Marching Band

Our marching band spreads music and joy at Pride parades, community events, and other performances throughout the Los Angeles region. Members rehearse on weekends leading up to our events. Whether you play an instrument, toss a flag, twirl a baton, or want to volunteer, there's a place for everyone!
