    This year, the Dallas Pride Parade will celebrate 35 years of celebrating diversity.

    The parade and festival are hailed as a “party with a purpose,” punctuated with love, acceptance and equality.

    It’s the biggest weekend for the North Texas LGBT community and allies.

    “It’s important because there are a lot of people, whether youth or adults, who don’t get to be themselves in their normal everyday lives and this is one day they can be themselves – no judgment,” incoming Dallas Pride executive Jaron Turnbow said.
