    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.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Nearly 55,000 people are expected to descend on Dallas during the weekend. The most heavily attended events are usually Saturday’s Pride Festival at Reverchon Park and Sunday’s Alan Ross Texas Freedom Pride Parade.
