LGBA Marching Band, First LGBT Group to March in Inaugural Parade


Yesterday Towleroad made a visit to a rehearsal of the Lesbian and Gay Band Association. The band's participation in Obama's inauguration marks the first time that an LGBT group has been asked to march in an inaugural parade. LGBA is a 27-year-old organization that was formed to foster community bands made up of LGBT members. It represents 27 states, and the musicians have come together from 21 bands across the country. We talked briefly to five musicians in the band about their participation and the music that will be played along the parade route today.
