University of Michigan Band Shows Halftime Show Support For LGBTQ+ Community

The University of Michigan marching band celebrated the school’s LGBTQ+ students, staff, and supporters on Saturday with a homecoming halftime show dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the university’s Spectrum Center — a space at the school that supports, advocates, and educates around LGBTQ+ topics. Music from the performance included hits from Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Kim Petras, Andrew Gold, Sister Sledge, and Cyndi Lauper. John Pasquale, a professor of conducting and the director of the university’s marching band, told The Advocate that he wanted to make a public statement in support of his students and in support of the Spectrum Center. “I was proud to do it. We just, as a community, came together and there it is.” He said the show took about seven to eight months to plan and coordinate. He then said

“The point we were trying to make is that love is love. And love wins.”
