A point of local pride and actually a display of equity that will be good for biz, local party life and this town's sense of normalcy — Inasmuch as the LGBT community had dominated the politics and cultural life of Midtown KC for more than a generation with no end to their reign in sight . . . Even in the advent of the toy train.
Here's the word from an AWESOME TKC READER . . .
"After more than 12 years without a Gay Pride Parade in Kansas City, the new group running the festival is bringing back a Parade from Westport through the Plaza to Theis Park. They've had festivals, but just not a parade as other cities do."
Here's what they say on their Facebook page:
🏳️🌈⚧ KANSAS CITY PRIDE PARADE! ⚧🏳️🌈
We are bringing the parade back to KC on Saturday, August 21st at 11 a.m. - it will kick off from Westport Rd. & Broadway Blvd. and travel south to Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd., continuing east to Theis Park where Show-Me Kansas City Pride will be held!
Mark your calendar now! For parade entry information, please visit www.kcpridealliance.org/parade
