Dallas Pride would like to share our condolences to the family of Sable Alexander (Michael Champion) and his partner Linze Serell (Bill). Sable passed away January 12th due to complications from Covid-19. He was loved by many for his giving spirit and charity work spanning several decades in the Dallas LGBTQ Community and was also one of our 2020 Dallas Pride Grand Marshals. Thank you Sable for your service to our community.
It’s with great sadness we announce the passing of Dallas Pride board member Steven Geer. Steven was a beloved member of the Dallas community. He worked at several different establishments during his time in Dallas including the Round Up Saloon, The Dallas Eagle, and Barbara’s Pavilion. Steven was a regular at Voice of Pride as a contestant and later on as a judge. He could often be found around town showcasing his passion while singing Karaoke. We are profoundly grateful for Steven’s service to Dallas Pride as a board member the last 2 years. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Rest In Peace Steven, the Angel’s choir is lucky to have you.

A Pride flag with the City of Dallas seal is being raised in place of the City of Dallas’s official flag for the remainder of June 2020 and every June thereafter to celebrate Pride Month. The City of Dallas is the first city in America to have an official “pride” version of their city flag. Tonight, the City of Dallas will light up the skyline in rainbow colors.
