The Gay & Lesbian Alliance of North Texas (GALA) Board of Directors would like to extend our most sincere condolences to the victims and families
affected by the horrific act of violence in Florida last night. We stand in solidarity with the Orlando LGBT community.
Among the events planned is the GALA Pride Party scheduled for this Thursday, June 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the Blue Martini in Plano. In light of today’s
tragedy, GALA is changing its event to “Pride and Remembrance.”
The Board of Directors of GALA would also like to extend our thanks to Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, Police Chief Greg Rushin, and City Manager Bruce
Glasscock, and Frisco Police Chief Darren Stevens, all of whom reached out personally to GALA today to offer sympathy and to answer any questions
and concerns our community may have in light of this devastating news. Mayor LaRosiliere wanted to assure the LGBT community that we can feel safe
in Plano, and both Chiefs of Police offered a police presence at GALA Pride events.
