Five ways to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community.
Posted on Jun 3, 2020 By Ashley Turner
Happy Pride Month! Our annual Pride event has moved to a virtual experience this year, but you can still celebrate the LGBTQ+ community in a variety of ways. Come out of quarantine hiding and partake in these activities – but do it safely, and remember social distancing!
1. Visit the rainbow crosswalks
The Oak Lawn neighborhood recently added some new artwork with its first installation of rainbow crosswalks. You can find them at the intersections of Cedar Springs Road and Oak Lawn Avenue. Stop by and take a pic!
2. Support an Oak Lawn restaurant
Grab a bite to eat in Oak Lawn's favorite spots. Whether you're comfortable dining in or prefer to take it home, the neighborhood is here to serve you! You can't go wrong with classic diner food from Lucky's or hearty pasta from Sprezza.
3. Tune into a virtual event
Join Marsha Dimes & Friends for a Virtual Drag Brunch: Pride Edition on June 6; participate in a friendly game of virtual bingo presented by the Resource Center – Glowing with Pride Gaybingo on June 20, featuring drag and comedy; and enjoy a virtual tour of the Resource Center and hear from CEO, Cece Cox during Get Centered Evening Tour on June 23.
4. Take a walk through the gayborhood
Put on your walking shoes and go for a scenic stroll around Oak Lawn. Head down Cedar Springs, venture to the green spaces at Reverchon Park or Turtle Creek Park, and make a snack break at Eatzi's Market and Bakery before heading home.
5. Enjoy the arts
If you're missing the beautiful sounds of the Women's Chorus of Dallas, you can check out their performances on their YouTube channel. Or you can watch some clips of the Uptown Players past Broadway shows online here.
