House of Trees (HOT) artists Amy, Jennifer, & Noah Khoshbin invite everyone to a special WorldPride Workshop on the street, where all ages make colorful felt creations with phrases and iconography in the form of banners, capes, signs, crowns, sashes, badges or whatever they want. Parade them around Oculus Plaza all the way to the Dyke March happening directly after the event. Also enjoy and dance to music DJed by members of BRUJAS, a feminist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist political organization.

Also shop local artists at The Oculus Holiday Market.
