Hundreds Of El Pasoans Show Up To Support Sun City Pride Parade
Over the weekend, hundreds of El Pasoans showed up to support and show their love during the Sun City Pride Parade in downtown El Paso.
Congrats to El Paso Sun City Pride for an incredible end to a stellar Summer of Pride.
Since June, El Paso Sun City Pride has held dozens of events throughout the city, including a kick-off Pride Block Party at Raves Club in East El Paso followed by a series of events from Pride Night at Southwest University Park with the El Paso Chihuahuas to the Locomotives, a pool party, Bingo bar crawl, DJ's and so much more.
This year's pride participants included the Amigo Man, Ozzy The Locomotive Mascot, Miss Piggy, Veronica Escobar and her team, Walgreens, Sun City Stealth - The Women's Football Alliance, Borderland Rainbow Center, and so many more entities.
After the parade, a ticketed Tea Brunch took place at The Manor, where mariachis welcomed guests, followed by local drag queen performances featuring special guest, Scottish-American drag performer Morgan McMicheals from the second season of RuPaul's Drag Race.
My hats off to all the hard-working individuals who made this weekend’s Pride Parade so memorable, including El Paso Sun City Pride Board members, President Edward Gallardo III, Parade Director Ronald Nunez-Rupert, Jesus Padilla, Dave Castle, and the dozens of others who worked tirelessly to get the event off the ground.
Thank you again to El Paso Sun City Pride for inviting me to serve as a Grand Marshal this year; it was such an honor. Plus, thank you to all the newcomers who, for the first time, found the courage to come out to participate in the parade and share their truth with the world.
