Fort Worth Pride steps off an hour earlier this year at 11 a.m. instead of noon — on Saturday, Oct. 7. The change was made for traffic control purposes. This year’s parade in FTW will be built around the theme “Live life bold” and will be a little larger than last year’s. many political candidates will be participating this year including John Duncan, a candidate for the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives currently held by Joe Barton. That district includes parts of Tarrant County. Allison Compolo, who is challenging Texas State Sen. Konni Burton, also will participate. The headline entertainer at the festival is Jason Dottley, who performs at 2 p.m. The annual Pride Picnic takes place in Trinity Park, 2401 University Drive, Fort Worth on Sunday, Oct. 8. If you miss Jason Dottley at this performance you can also catch him at a bar in Dallas called Alexandre’s located on the strip.
