Famous for its colorful parties, fabulous parades and welcoming nature, Pride, a celebration of LGBTQIA culture and rights, is held in almost every major city across the nation. This weekend, members of the Texas State community are offered a chance to participate in the festivities. As San Marcos joins the party, the true colors of Pride are revealed.
Four years ago, Silvia Sandoval, a self-proclaimed “one-man team,” gave life to Rainbow Night, a weekly event directed toward the city’s LGBTQIA community. Little did Sandoval know that her simple attempt “to bring equality to a town that didn’t have it” would turn into the makings of San Marcos’ first ever Pride celebration.
