The Oklahoma City LGBT Pride Parade starts at 6 p.m. today near Memorial Park at NW 36th St. and Classen. The parade goes down Classen to 39th St. and then ends near The Strip at Penn.
This year’s parade will honor the late Paul Thompson, a civic leader who helped organize the first Oklahoma City Gay Pride Parade.
A related festival, featuring music, food and gift booths, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Memorial Park. Other events will be held at The Strip before the parade begins.
The LGBT Parade, which has grown substantially over the years, attracts a diverse crowd of participants and spectators, and it’s always a lot of fun.
