Participants in the 2012 NWA Pride Parade marched along Dickson Street before gathering in the Walton Arts Center parking lot for a brief rally Saturday morning in Fayetteville.

Several organizers spoke during the rally before Mayor Lioneld Jordan read a proclamation declaring this week as Pride Week.

The theme for this year’s event was “Color Outside the Lines,” a celebration of the LGBT community in a ‘red’ state. The parade was in honor Linda Wilson and Art Beeghly, two NWA Pride organizers both who died in 2011.
