Dallas Black Pride: Pride by the Lake at Bachman

Expect more to this than just food

Bachman Lake

Black Pride weekend begins to wrap up with this fourth annual event. Pride by the Lake AKA the Him4Him and Her4Her picnic not only serves up the food, but it also might be the only time you’ll see a drag show outdoors at a lake. The Legends of Dallas will give a mini-drag show. Then get ready to battle with the j-setting competition, play some games and just chill out.

DEETS: Bachman Lake, 3500 Northwest Highway. 1 – 5 p.m. Free. DFWPridemovement.org or DallasSouthernPride.com.

So the Federation of Gay Games just voted 48-4-2 to do away with the practice in 2014, which returns to 2006's rules that only make bodybuilding, powerlifting, and wrestling subject to peeing in a cup; other sports can still drug test, but only if there's a compelling reason to do so. The main controversy? The World Anti-Doping Agency protocols, which the 2010 Games used, "are not sensitive to older recreational athletes [like these guys] or poz athletes [steroids are often prescribed for facial wasting], two historically important groups of Gay Games participants," according to a motion the FGG voted on, which also claimed money devoted to drug testing could be used toward sports scholarships.
