The folks at Overton Park's Greensward are throwing a Pride picnic on Saturday, June 25th at 10 a.m. Attendees are asked to bring a picnic lunch and "a willingness to participate in silly games," according to the event's Facebook page.

Pain't It Cool Body Art will be there painting faces and accepting donations for Hearts of Gold Pit Rescue.

June is LGBTQ Pride month across the country, and most cities are having their big Pride celebrations this coming weekend (which also coincides with the first anniversary of nationwide marriage equality).

Memphis' official Pride event, hosted by Mid-South Pride, was moved to the fall several years ago due to the area's wickedly hot summer weather. The official Mid-South Pride parade and festival is scheduled for September 24th on Beale Street.
