Amid hostility to LGBTQ rights in some schools, youth say Pride is essential in 2024

Loring Park was packed with families Friday for Twin Cities Pride's inaugural Youth Night

One after the other, the teenagers strutted up the catwalk at Loring Park, struck a pose and began dancing.

Twelve-year-old Maydi Loftus drew applause and several screams of excitement while lip-syncing to "Mrs. Potato Head" by Melanie Martinez, leaping into the air and landing in the splits. The performance was part of a youth drag show that kicked off Youth Night on Friday at Twin Cities Pride.

"I just love seeing all these people," Maydi said. "I can relate to almost everyone here. It's awesome."
