Rejuvenating the strip

OKC Pride works with community leaders on a revitalization plan along 39th Street.


Kelley Chambers

For years, the area around N.W. 39th and Pennsylvania has been home to a loose-knit collection of bars and businesses catering to Oklahoma City’s gay and lesbian community. But Jeremy Crites, president of OKC Pride, said it has lacked a sense of community.
