On Ocean Boulevard, in downtown Long Beach, California—a city SGI President Ikeda visited in 1990—111 SGI-USA members and guests of the Courageous Freedom group (LGBTQ) marched for peace in the 34th annual Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade on May 21. Members participated as a marching unit to the beat of the Ikeda Youth Ensemble drummers. A follow-up SGI intro-to-Buddhism meeting took place on May 30 at the LGBTQ Center in Long Beach.
