DALLAS, September 13, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Dallas-area homosexual activists reacted with anger and disappointment this week after city officials pledged to crack down on lewdness and nudity at the annual gay pride parade.
While past parades have featured bare-breasted women and men in tight, wet underwear with visible genitalia, Dallas law enforcement said the city will no longer turn a blind eye to such violations of city and state law.
The pride parade rules now state: “In accordance with the city of Dallas public nudity ordinance,parade participants must not expose genitalia, buttocks, or female breasts.”
Additionally the rules say that, “In accordance with state of Texas obscenity law, sexual paraphernalia, real or simulated sex acts and genital or phallic representations are prohibited from the parade.”
City officials, along with the event’s organizers, said they want the pride parade to be more “family friendly.”“You certainly can still express yourself, but unfortunately if your way of expressing yourself is to be naked or to be aroused in public
, then it’s inappropriate, and I think most of the community agrees with that,” he said.
