Todrick Hall was the headliner for Capital City Pride on Saturday night in Des Moines. The weekend festivities included a Drag Queen Story Hour as well as a Youth Drag Show. Here is what Hall said the best part of the weekend was:

“And you know the thing I’m the most excited about it is being able to see all these young kids out celebrating pride. The world has changed so much. I love that so many people are coming out here and teaching their children in a world where we are having politicians push don’t say gay bills, it is amazing to have a place like Des Moines, Iowa that is bringing people in. As far as the eye can see, I see children standing on their parents’ shoulders. This is what pride is about. This is what the future looks like. This is what it feels like to be on the right side of history everyone.”
