TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Organizers with the LGBTQ community held their first pride parade in downtown Fairpark celebrating the progress of the community in Northeast Mississippi.
Eric White says like any event planned there were some obstacles that slowed down the process of having the paraded but he's thankful
The community played a major role and making the event happen.
Although this is a joyous occasion for some, others felt like the parade should have not been brought into Tupelo.
“Well we feel like the family unit in America is under attack and we feel like this parade is a form of attack," said Chad Scott.
The LGBTQ community plans to have a PRIDE even at least once a month.
