  • Senior Sophia Zimmerman buys a flag at Dallas Pride on Sept. 16. It is Zimmerman's second year attending Pride and definitely not her last. “Sometimes I don't feel accepted, but at pride I know that everyone there, even the people I don't know, will support me,” Zimmerman said.

  • Senior Kayley Upp puts on sunglasses to watch the parade. Upp has felt at home in the LGBTQ+ community because she’s able to connect with others like her. “Many of my friends have been rejected by people they care about just because of who they love or the pronouns they go by,” Upp said. “Being able to take them to Pride let’s them open up and truly just be themselves.”

  • Senior Stephanie Henderson watches the parade. Henderson felt the community helped her be comfortable with who she is. “A lot of icons that represent the gay community certainly bring a lot of attention to it,” Henderson said. “It helps people realize that it’s not just a few people who are a part of this community.”

  • Senior Riley Rentfro talks to a friend at Pride. Rentfro always felt out of place until she became a part of the LGBTQ+ community. “The community has always been a safe place for people,” Rentfro said. “I believe that it will continue to grow in years to come.”

  • Senior Sophia Hare gets into the car, leaving Pride. Hare was excited to attend her first Pride in a community that she can relate to. “I think the LGBTQ+ community has made a difference because it teaches people to accept themselves,” Hare said. “One message that I hear most often is that ‘it gets better,’ and I think that’s something that can give hope to everyone, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.”
