Decked out in rainbow accessories roughly two-dozen George Peabody Elementary School students came together on the blacktop courtyard of their San Francisco public school for a flash mob performance to "LOVE" by Gianluca Vacchi and Sebastián Yatra.

The 2018 song, sung partly in English and Spanish, includes the refrain, "We all need a / A little bit of love."Following the choreographed performance before the start of school Friday, the entire student body proceeded to march around the city block of its Inner Richmond neighborhood.

Arranged by class, one first-grade teacher spelled out "l-o-v-e" with her students chanting back "spread love, spread love."Greeting his pupils as they completed their loop back to the school was Principal Willem Vroegh wearing a rainbow sport coat and holding up a sign that read "Peabody Pride." He had decided to forgo the matching rainbow pants or else the entire ensemble would have been "too bright," he joked with a colleague."This is our first official Pride parade," Vroegh, a straight ally who has overseen the school for 17 years, told the Bay Area Reporter. "During Pride Month we have talked about it in the classroom for many, many years, for as long as I could remember, but have never had something this big before."Members of the school's Rainbow Club, launched last school year, came up with the idea for the LGBTQ celebration.
