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.
