The biggest, most diverse queer community in Texas got a jump on summer this year with Dallas Pride's smashing annual parade and festival over the first weekend in June.

From the dulcet tones of the Turtle Creek Chorale to the twirling rainbow stripes of the Flaggots; from the Hollywood glow of honorary grand marshal Billy Porter to the intergenerational joy of the festival's Family Pride Zone, the resilient, celebratory spirit of LGBTQ+ Dallas set the city asparkle.

But in the heart of Texas, Pride is too powerful to be confined to a mere weekend celebration or even a whole month: Dallas' rainbow of inclusivity arcs across all four seasons.

So don't let the parade pass you by: Visit Dallas, where Pride marches on throughout the summer and all year long.
