EUCLID, Ohio — On most Saturday nights, you'll find Mig's Pla-Mor Roller Rink in Euclid packed with people skating. But for the most loyal, it's not just about rolling around on four wheels, it's an entire culture, a safe haven and a place they can be themselves. Folks spin around in circles, dance, and make up routines with their friends to show off. This culture is making its way back to Cleveland, but even now it's nothing like it was back in the 1950s and 1960s when the original Pla-Mor was still standing.

News 5's Amanda Van Allen reports on the return of skating and the impact it has on the local community.
