The Dallas – Fort Worth Coalition of Reason participated in the Dallas Gay Pride Parade this past weekend. Their group, including members of the Metroplex Atheists and the Fellowship of Freethought, included over 75 gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and straight allies.
Video is below (but it might have some NSFW images):
In case you’re wondering, Dr. Zachary Moore, the coordinator of the group, said there were, indeed, some religious people present at the parade:
There were a number of liberal churches that marched as well, including, notably, the Cathedral of Hope. Although they, like us, were promoting tolerance and inclusion, we were the only group doing that from a secular perspective, and it was pretty well received. It was really great to have such a positive response from the parade-watchers (not something we’re accustomed to), and also nice to meet some friendly liberal Christians.
Are any other groups planning to march in their local pride parades this year?
