Earlier this year, 17 people lost their lives and thousands of others have been changed forever as a result of the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) in Parkland, Florida.
Following this tragedy, the students at MSD, including the school’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA), have ignited a national movement to end gun violence and make our schools safe for all young people. They have been bold, fearless, and they are fighting for their lives!
Long Island Pride recognizes those brave youth and their families as the Grand Marshals for the 28th Long Island Pride Parade. Many of these MSD students were in the class of Scott Beigel, who lost his life protecting them from gunfire.
For the first time ever, these MSD students will be meeting and marching with the parents and family of Scott Beigel, who still reside on Long Island.
