More than fifty people joined the Long Beach Airport (LGB) delegation at the 2015 Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Parade over the weekend, to celebrate with tens of thousands of people lining Ocean Blvd. for miles along the scenic coast.
Airport employees, and their friends and families, climbed onto a balloon-filled float or airplane-themed golf cart, or simply walked along the route, waving and reveling with the electric crowd. Every participant sported a powder blue t-shirt with the LGB logo on the front, and this year’s Pride slogan – “Color Our World With Pride” – emblazoned across the back. They also passed out LGB pom-poms as people danced in the streets, waved from balconies and partied on rooftops.
This was also the first Pride Parade attended by Airport Director Bryant L. Francis, C.M., after he arrived at the helm in January, and he reported that he had a great time. Special thanks goes also to our dedicated team of volunteers, who made our participation possible. LGB would also like to thank the No Toro food truck team for joining us.
See you at Pride 2016!
