LANSING, MI (WILX) - Saturday marked the 30th year of the Michigan Pride parade in Lansing.

The day began with parade festivities, then moved to the steps of the Capitol.

Hundreds gathered to hear speakers like Ingham County Commissioner Bryan Crenshaw, Attorney General Dana Nessel and more.

"It get's better and it gets worse. Every day is a roller coaster. I have family who supports me and I have really good friends. I have a really good support system," said Cody, a transgender male who spoke about his journey.

Festival-goers also focused on the importance of voting.

"You have to get out there and vote you have to elect people who will be your voice at the table," said Crenshaw.
