Update regarding the Dallas Pride Festival mentioned in this earlier Sexual Diversity article: Gatherings and Inclusion In The Wake of COVID-19
It's outdoors and in-person: Dallas Pride is back with a 2021 celebration to raise awareness and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. This year's events will take place Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5, and will be the best version of what is possible at this time, prioritizing public health while providing numerous opportunities for LGBTQ+ people and allies to experience visibility, solidarity and joy. In addition to the outside, in-person experiences, the event will also be streamed online for those who feel more comfortable watching from home.
Both events will be held outdoors, in the Band Shell at Fair Park, and gates will open at 7 p.m. On Friday night, the event will feature musical entertainment. On Saturday evening, a variety show hosted by entertainer Marsha Dimes will feature local and regional entertainment including Kennedy Davenport, The Fly Queens, The Sisters-in-Action, the Rose Room cast, Sister Helen Holy and Anton Shaw, in addition to other entertainers to be announced.
"Pride is such a meaningful and galvanizing event for our region, and it is wonderful that we are now in a place where we can plan for some in-person activities," noted Jaron Turnbow, executive director of Dallas Pride, "and we're pleased to feature regional talent that has shown true leadership and dedication over this past year. This is truly a Pride for the people of North Texas."
Dallas Pride is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening, supporting and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community by creating events and initiatives that foster connections between members of the community, its allies and its supporters.
