GLBT Marching Band
Community activist Dominique Storni is looking for people interested in forming a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender marching band to perform during the Utah Pride Parade. Storni is looking for musicians who have had some experience in marching band, music teachers familiar with typical marching band instruments (drums, horns, etc.), and donations of sheet music. For those who cannot play an instrument but who have interest in helping, Storni is also in need of a support crew.
