Be Proud 

Since winning the title of Miss Gay America 2006, Nicole Dubois has been enjoying the whirlwind lifestyle of a pageant queen: traveling, schmoozing, performing in revue shows -- and now hosting the annual Mid-South Pride GLBT Pride Festival this Saturday, June 10th. The festival, part of the 26th annual GLBT Pride weekend in Memphis, will feature live entertainment, vendors, information booths, and a beer garden. But don't get too sloshed -- you may want to help carry the 100-foot-long rainbow flag in the Pride Parade. The line up for the parade starts at 3 p.m. at First Congregational Church on the corner of Cooper and Walker, and at 4 p.m., marchers will head north, ending at Peabody Park at Cooper and Higbee for the festival. All events will be child-friendly, especially Sunday's Pride Picnic at Peabody Park, where there will be entertainment and food will be available. Bring a blanket and an open mind.

Mid-South Pride GLBT Pride Festival, 2-10 p.m., Saturday, June 10th, Peabody Park.

Pride Parade, 4 p.m., Saturday, June 10th, First Congregational Church to Peabody Park.

Pride Picnic, 2 p.m., Sunday, June 11th, Peabody Park. All events are free but donations are welcome.
