Equality Texarkana will have its annual 'Pride Picnic' on Saturday at Spring Lake Park in Texarkana Texas.

Equality Texarkana had this to say about the upcoming picnic:

We have reserved pavilion 3 in Spring Lake Park (the one by the dog park), so come along to share some food and fellowship in recognition of Pride Month. This is a potluck picnic, so bring along your favorite dish to pass. We will have waters on-site, but you are welcome to bring other (non-alcoholic) drinks of your choice. We look forward to seeing you all again and to celebrate PRIDE!

The picnic is scheduled for Saturday from 11 am until 3 pm.

Equality Texarkana is about serving and empowering the local LGBT community and other under-served and discriminated communities in the Texarkana area.

Here are the details about how the group came to be:

Jimmy Pope was sitting at home looking through Facebook seeing the negativity being spread and decided he had enough! He started the Facebook Group Equality Texarkana to offer a positive platform for the LGBT community to grow stronger and to support one another. Shortly after the group started, we decided what Texarkana needed was a Pride Event to draw everyone together.

If you would like more information on the group as well as other ways you can get involved you can visit them on Facebook or their website EqualityTexarkana.org.
