Today, Dallas celebrates our LGBTQ+ community throughout the year with a varied collection of events and programming. We're home to Black Tie Dinner, the largest annual LGBTQ seated dinner fundraising event in the world. Our performing arts community enjoys the hard work and dedication of the Turtle Creek Chorale, the most-recorded male chorus in the world, and Uptown Players, a theatre company focused on presenting LGBTQ+ stories. And because everything is bigger in Texas, we're even home to the largest predominantly LGBTQ+ church in the world, The Cathedral of Hope. DIFFA Dallas, the largest fundraising event in Texas supporting the fight against HIV/AIDS, and the first Rainbow LULAC chapter also call Dallas home.
The City of Dallas has comprehensive ordinances offering lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender residents protection from discrimination in employment, housing, and other public areas. Dallas has more rainbow crosswalks than any city in America. Dallas was also the first, and is still the only, city in America that has an official PRIDE version of their City flag, which flies over City Hall for the entire month, every June.
