“Loud and proud” came to live at this year’s Denver PrideFest parade. Iliff alum Rev. Jerry Herships was among the many paraders who marched down Colfax Avenue for the parade to celebrate the LGBTQ community. Thousands lined the streets to cheer the rainbow-colored flags, shirts and hair painted passing parade. At Civic Center park, Admissions Assistant Director Laura Ralston was at the Ilff booth to share our story with the visitors who came to join the festivities with hundreds of vendors, food trucks, and live music.
