Akron held its first Pride Festival in nearly two decades over the weekend, just hours after President Trump issued a directive not to allow anyone who’s transgender into the military. WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia reports on the atmosphere in the face of renewed attacks on LGBT rights.

The pride festival on the west side was the first under that title, after the previous Out In Akron ended in 2001. Thousands of people showed up for food, music and camaraderie.

Last month, it looked like Akron’s Coach House Theatre was going to close. Now, the theater’s owner says it will return for a 90th year.

Last month, Coach House Artistic Directors Nancy Cates and Terry Burgler said they would step down after the theater’s parent organization, the Akron City Woman’s Club, could not guarantee support for another season.
