Idyllwild Arts joins the Palm Springs Pride Parade

For the first time, Idyllwild Arts students marched in the Palm Springs Pride Parade. Over 120,000 people lined Palm Canyon Drive as our students cheered and waved, occasionally chanting our academy mantra, “Remember who you are… and what you stand for!” The Idyllwild Arts Gender-Sexuality Alliance was one of twenty LGBTQ++ high school clubs represented. The Palm Springs Pride Parade has the largest youth participation of any Pride event in the country. Following the parade, our students enjoyed themselves at the Pride festival and the specially-designed “Youth Zone.” This made for a fantastic end to a week of activities and events centered around gender roles and sexuality identity issues.
