June is National Gay Pride Month and for many folks around the country that means its Pride parade time. But in Dallas, we have our Pride parade in September — in part to honor Judge Jerry Buchmeyer’s 1982 ruling striking down the Texas sodomy law and in part to escape the heat of June.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t get in on the Pride month activities. Because June is when we start nominating people to be grand marshal of the Pride parade coming up in September.
The Dallas Tavern Guild is asking that folks weigh in on who should be named grand marshals of the 2016 Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade by nominating some worthy individual. Nominations are being accepted online here until July 1. At that point, a ballot with the top 5 nominees will be posted online and the public will vote.
Don’t delay. Nominate your choice today.
