The last year has been one for the LGBTQ record books: Our state’s ban on same-sex marriage was deemed unconstitutional (pending appeal), three same-sex couples were issued licenses through the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in November and The Boom’s Gospel Brunch still hasn’t been shut down by local officials. So get your tushes out to OKC Pride’s 2014 events, beginning with a Block Party 7 p.m. Friday and concluding with the 2014 Pride Parade 6 p.m. Sunday. It all goes down on, er, at the NW 39th Street Enclave around 39th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Admission is free. Visit okcpride.org.
We know it’s summer, and the last thing you want to do is dive down a giant Slip ’N Slide, play volleyball, chow down on food truck cuisine and listen to live music. But please bear with us.

The party is from 4 p.m. to midnight Saturday at NE Second Street and Central Avenue. Admission is free, and guests must be 21 and older. Visit downtownokc.com.
