In addition, most of the attention of our country, including here in North Texas continued, rightfully so, to be focused on the ongoing protests happening across the nation in the wake of George Floyd.

Dallas did celebrate Pride that year with a virtual party in late July. And even without an in-person parade, Pride needs grand marshals.
