NWA Pride kicks off with Trans March, Rally & Festival


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Transfest is kicking off what’s set to be the biggest Pride celebration in Arkansas.

The corner of Dickson Street and Block Avenue in Fayetteville is the place to begin for tonight’s Trans March. It’s also the spot to grab some free water because as temperatures get hotter this weekend it’s vital to remain hydrated.

The Trans March will end on the Fayetteville Town Center Plaza. After the march, you possibly can head inside to affix the rally and Transfest at center.

Below is the organizer’s statement in regards to the meaning behind the march:

“We march for visibility; to empower and support trans, nonbinary, gender variant, and gender-nonconforming people; to talk out against violence, hate, transphobia, injustice, and oppression; and to be fabulous and powerful in the corporate of those that love and protect us.”
