A Friend of Unfair Park wonders: Why isn't Dallas participating in National GoTopless Protest Day on August 23, to which I replied, "Apparently, it's not too late." Nudge, nudge. 'Round the same time, a Queer Liberaction member sent a reminder concerning The Great Nationwide Kiss-In scheduled for Saturday -- Dallas's smooch-off will take place at Rosa Parks Plaza. So, what to expect: "women kissing women, men kissing men, free queer hugs, signs, placards and even a Queer kissing booth! ... Damn it let's show the heteros how it's done!" Lessons start at 1 p.m.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
