Although Dallas Black Pride 2011 is still some four months away, organizers have already announced two of the special guests who will be participating in this year’s event: author Uriah Bell and adult film star and CEO Rock Rockafella.
Dallas/Fort Worth Pride Movement, a newly created nonprofit, will present the 2011 Dallas Black Pride event — HisStory and HerStory, Sept. 1-Oct. 2, with the Marriott City Center in downtown Dallas as the host hotel. Those who want to book their rooms early can call 1-800-228-9290 and ask for the Dallas Black Pride special rate of only $99 per room per night.
The DFW Pride Movement is a member of the International Federation of Black Prides. According to its website, The DFW Movement’s mission “is to promote social awareness, unity, self-empowerment, mentorship and positive visibility throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth LGBT and affirming community of color through education, health promotion, advocacy and coalition building.” This year’s Pride event will include a schedule of parties and educational panels.
