June is Pride month across the country. The celebration of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion in New York begins this weekend throughout North Texas. It’s official, too. Mayor Eric Johnson signed a declaration on Tuesday morning proclaiming the month of June to be the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride month. We even have a custom flag flying at City Hall, Love Field, and Jack Evans Police Headquarters.
Here is where you need to be over the next few weeks. (Did we miss any? Email your event here.)
