Gay Pride Block Party and Parade

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-06-30

PrideFest already blew its rainbow-colored wad all over HemisFair Park back in June, but SA’s alternative lifestylers aren’t finished celebrating. In fact, Saturday’s block party and parade ? the theme of which is Amor Sin Fronteras ? may be even prouder than PrideFest. Starting at 3 p.m., the gayest strip in SA will be blocked off to create an LGBT playground, with untraditional favorites like a high-heel race, a gay newlywed game, and a gay dating game. LULAC National President Rosa Rosales will act as Grand Marshal for the parade, with assistance from glamorous emcees Alayna Marquez and Murrah Noble. Girl in a Coma wraps things up with a live performance at 10 p.m. $4, 3-11pm (parade begins at 9pm), 1402-1500 N. Main (between Evergreen and Laurel).
