Supporters March In Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade

The 2014 NWA Pride Parade was held Saturday (June 14) morning in Downtown Fayetteville.

Participants marched along Dickson Street before gathering in the Walton Arts Center parking lot for a brief rally.

The theme for this year’s parade was “United We Stand! Change is Coming!”

Organizers said the Grand Marshals were Walmart Pride leaders who influenced their company’s decision to implement Domestic Partner Benefits, along with other LGBT policies.

Northwest Arkansas Pride was founded in 2007 by Ken Boyle. The non-profit organization’s mission is to educate, celebrate and advocate respect and awareness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and supportive allies, according to its website.

    I feel sorry for the very young children who are brought to this thing. They understand from common knowledge that this is wrong and confusing? I hope someone explains to the kids this is also how aids is spread, it’s not all pretty colors and dancing around. There’s a price to pay for this life style.

    Having relations with someone who has HIV or IV needles is the causation of the disease.

    I feel sorry for people who look down their noses at other peoples lifestyles when they haven’t gotten the mote out of their own eyes.

      Kevin thats why NWA is a growing economy yet the River Valley can’t seem to get over itself. When you’re open to new ideas and concepts you’re open for growth.
