School of Rock Doylestown, a comprehensive music lesson and music education program for kids, tweens, teens, and adults, is taking an active role in a variety of upcoming Bucks County Pride Month events.

“Since we opened our doors in 2009, we’ve aimed to provide a safe, enriching, and encouraging atmosphere for all kids, especially LGBTQ+ young people in Bucks County,” said Melanie Boyd, general manager of School of Rock Doylestown. “Our activities in support of Pride Month will extend our commitment to LGBTQ+ rights, awareness, and freedom beyond our studios and classrooms and into the community.”

The school is currently selling Pride T-shirts at its 88 S. Main St. location. All net proceeds from the shirt sales will benefit The Rainbow Room, a support group that provides free education, counseling, and recreation services for LGBTQ+ tweens/teens in Bucks County.
