TARRANT COUNTY GAY PRIDE WEEK ASSOCIATION
Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association is a not-for-profit 501(c) organization. Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association is organized to produce and facilitate a family friendly, safe environment.
Pride celebrations and events are to promote a positive image for the community regarding Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered individuals, as well as educate and celebrate the diversity of the GLBT Community of Tarrant County, its Families, Friends and Supporters.
Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association was founded in 1981, to bring the gay community of Fort Worth & Tarrant County together in celebrating its pride in being gay, lesbian, transsexual or bi-gendered.
A selfless man named Gary Taylor had an unmatched spirit of community, family and pride. Gary’s other self, was an extraordinarily entertaining “Drag Queen” named Raina Lea. In the 70’s and early 80’s, Raina called gatherings of her Gay Brothers & Sisters, her family.
The first gatherings were at Forest Park’s Shelter House, a place to gather, out in the open, in public, where we could be exactly who we were, without discrimination, without judgment and without fear. Feeling that you belong, that you are valuable and a member of something bigger than yourself, part of this GREAT, BIG FAMILY, is what you got from these gatherings.
These gatherings, our foundation, is what we now call the Pride Picnic.
This year we celebrate the
