About Dallas Pride

With Dallas Pride, June begins with a blaze of color as the LGBTQ+ community of Dallas paints the city rainbow in a fashion like none other. The first weekend of June brings a weekend of friendship and harmony for the LGBTQ+ community in central Texas.

In 1972, the first pride parade hit the streets of Dallas with between 250 and 300 men and women gathered to show their pride through Downtown Dallas. The next official Dallas Gay Pride parade didn’t happen until June 1980. In 1983, the parade was moved from June to the third Sunday in September and renamed the Texas Freedom Parade. In 1991, it became the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade. In 2019, Dallas Pride officials decided to honor LGBTQ+ month by moving this pride events back to the month of June, which is the month that has been designated to honor the community and recognize the Stonewall Uprising. 

Today, Dallas Gay Pride is one of the most widely celebrated and widely participated events for the LGBTQ+ community. Dallas Gay Pride begins with a day of music and celebration, and closes with the world-renowned Dallas Pride Parade, which paints the streets with fabulous floats and majestic marchers. It's an event you will surely want to be a part of.

Dallas is also home to the Dallas Black Pride, the Texas Latino Gay Pride and the QueerBomb Dallas Pride rally

Dallas Black Pride (also known as DBP or Dallas Southern Pride) is an annual five-day event to celebrate the growth of the black LGBT Community in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The event has been in existence since 1996. Annually, approximately 15,000 people participate in the planned pride events.

The Texas Latino Gay Pride event began in 2014 and is held annually every early October in the Oaklawn district.

Since 2014 QueerBomb Dallas organizes their own Pride rally, march and party on the last weekend in June.  The event is completely non corporate and community funded.
