The William S. Richardson School of Law's Lambda Law Student Association at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa was selected as this year’s Honolulu Pride Parade Youth Grand Marshal. The pride parade will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at Magic Island, Ala Moana Beach Park, beginning at 10 a.m. 
The Pride Committee selected Lambda, explaining in their press release, “The members of Lambda Law UH Student Association are the embodiment of Harvey Milk’s quote ‘We have got to give them hope’ for they have given us hope here at Honolulu Pride, hope of a better future for not only the LGBTQI community but for every client they will have after law school.”
The Honolulu Pride Grand Marshals are selected to be the public emissaries of Honolulu Pride. They represent individuals and an organization that have made significant contributions to the LGBTQI community. Honolulu Pride recognizes community leaders in the following categories: individual, community, organizational and celebrity. Last year’s Grand Marshals included, among others: Marsha Rose Joyner, civil rights activist, Hawai‘i State Supreme Court Associate Justice Steve Levinson (ret.), and the ACLU of Hawai‘i.
Recognition goes to the board members from this past year that led Lambda to this great honor: President Ryan Loeffers; Vice President Kori Weinberger; Community Organizer Adam Chang; Treasurer Sylvia Wan; Secretary and Archivist Mika Haberlin; and first year law student representatives Brad Sova and Bianca Isaki. The Faculty Advisors are law professors Mark Levin and Linda Krieger.
The public is invited to participate and cheer on students as the Youth Grand Marshal. For more information go to
