Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7 –
Every year, the Tulsa community celebrates gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender pride with a festival that attracts hundreds downtown. This year, on Saturday, the festival kicks off at noon and continues until 10 p.m. with Battle of the Bands, ‘80s icon Tiffany and other great entertainment. Find your place along the street for the Pride Parade that will begin at 6 p.m. Starting at 13th and Boston, the parade will head north on Boston Avenue then east on Fourth Street, ending at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center where the celebration continues. On Sunday, the Rainbow Run, a 5k and half-mile fun run benefiting Tulsa Pride and the Oklahomans for Equality, will brighten up Centennial Park at 6th and Peoria. The 5k starts at 10 a.m., with the fun run beginning shortly after. Picnic in the Park will follow the run. For more information, visit www.okeq.org.
