Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

A Fond Farewell

If you’re a member of the LGBT community in Dallas, Michael Doughman impacted your life—whether you know it or not.

For years, he shaped Dallas Pride into the massive celebration it’s become today, which is no small feat. He entertained us both in—and out—of drag. He was a friend to all and a cherished voice for justice and equality in the community.

On Sunday, Michael passed away in Puerto Vallarta, where he had recently retired after decades of service in Dallas. For him to pass on during Pride Month seems only fitting to a man who was truly a rainbow personified.

This Sunday, join us in remembering Michael at his favorite haunt, The Round-Up Saloon. Share stories, meet those who loved him, and participate in the fundraiser to help assist with his final expenses. Even if you never met in person, you’ll want to say goodbye.

Rest in peace, dear Michael, you will never be forgotten.

A Fundraiser for Michael Doughman
Saturday, June 15
3:00 to 6:00 p.m.
The Round-Up Saloon
