O-pa at the Heartland PRIDE Parade

The weather held in the middle of the severe storm that affected our city, and we were able to come together and celebrate our local LGBTQIA+ community on Saturday, July 10 at the Heartland PRIDE Parade! O-pa staff and volunteers passed out 1500 bottles of water, handed out Melissa Etheridge ticket giveaway codes, danced and twirled and ultimately saw plenty of rainbows after the storm. You can watch the KMTV 3 livestream here.
