Unless you’ve been flooded out or living under a rock, by now you should know that Bob the Drag Queen was crowned “America’s Next Drag Superstar” during the season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Logo.

With her brazen, larger-than-life personality, Bob the Drag Queen was always the fan favorite to take the top spot since she sashayed into the spotlight “purse first.”

“I guess RuPaul saw something special in me that said “superstar,” Bob stated to the Advocate after her victory on on the show. After the show Bob explains she plans to “give back to the community,” “support the children,” and “make people laugh.” Something we will have to wait and see, I guess.

On Pride Saturday June 25, Bob the Drag Queen will take over Montrose, and South Beach for a spectacular show. Check out the Facebook invite here.

 

Dallas Gay Pride 2016

Dallas Gay Pride 2016

The Alan Ross Texas Freedom Pride Parade and Festival has steadily grown into one of the biggest and most enthusiastic gay pride celebrations in the southern half of the United States. It’s actually the formal name for Dallas Gay Pride, which this year observes its 31st anniversary (at least in its current form), with its celebration set for September 18, 2016. Dallas actually began holding a Gay Pride celebration in 1972, in solidarity with and commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Riots that are the basis for many Pride events held around the country in June.

Dallas Gay Pride Parade and Festival in September:

The Dallas Tavern Guild took over the operation of Dallas Pride in 1982, moved it to September, and called it the Texas Freedom Parade. It was later renamed in honor of one of the parade’s key architects, the former Guild director Alan Ross. Since 1983, The Alan Ross Texas Freedom Pride Parade and Festival is held the third Sunday in September – in 2016, it occurs on Sunday, September 18.

Austin Gay Pride 2016

Not only is Austin the state capital of the Lone Star State, it’s also one of the most progressive and gay-friendly cities in the southern United States. So it’s only fitting that this fast-growing city’s Austin Gay Pride Festival and Parade continues to grow in attendance and popularity.

The event is a combination of what used to be two different but concurrent events, the Pride of Texas Festival and the Austin Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Pride Parade, which combined forces a few years ago to create one all-inclusive, popular event.

Austin Gay Pride takes place at the end of August – the dates of Austin Pride Week are August 20 through August 28, 2016, with the Austin Pride Festival and Parade taking place on August 27, 2016.
