Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Historical Blindness

If we can’t look to our past, we’re doomed to a future that should’ve been brighter.

We read that on a fortune cookie once. Or in a bathroom stall. (We only go to the most philosophical bars.)

But no matter the source, it’s true. It’s vitally important to embrace and understand history, whether it’s as a family, a nation or as a community.

That’s why we’re so excited to have a group dedicated to keeping the past alive so that all generations, present and future, can embrace it. And hopefully learn from it.

The Dallas Way is a non-profit group created to gather, organize, store and present Dallas’ GLBT history. As a part of their efforts, they have a semi-regular event called Outrageous Oral.

Because Plain Vanilla Oral is just sad.

Tomorrow night, travel up north to the University of North Texas in Denton on National Coming Out Day for an evening of storytelling from members of the GLBT community. You’ll laugh, cry and who knows what else.

For a preview of the type of stories you’ll experience, check out The Dallas Way’s YouTube Channel.

Then head to Denton and be a part of history. And a 20/20 future.
