Dallas Gay Pride – A Month of Events
For LGBT Dallasites, the options for social outings during National Pride Month in June only continue to grow.
The city’s LGBT Task Force has planned events over the month for the past two years. Last year the events focused more on social than educational as the year prior. A family zoo day was added, and will return this year, and more library gatherings for LGBT families made the calendar. Events are still being finalized
Dallas Gay Pride month kicks off at City Hall Wednesday, June 4, in the Flag Room for a city proclamation declaring it Pride Month and honoring individuals during a Spirit of Equality Award ceremony. Recipients will be selected in categories of leadership, ally and community.
An award ceremony was slated for last year but was derailed when former Councilwoman Delia Jasso removed her signature from the equality resolution memo, preventing a vote on the measure. Instead, the Task Force gave one award to former City Manager Mary Suhm before she retied to honor her longtime commitment to helping the group.
