OKC Pride

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about a win for supporters of a ballot initiative petition on Medicaid Expansion when the state Supreme Court ruled it could move forward, the fate of $85M in an opioid settlement with Teva Pharmaceuticals awaits a judges ruling and Oklahoma City passes an ordinance allowing for an amnesty period for past due parking offenses and low level offenders.

GWIZ is an amateur stock car racer, an electronic DJ, and a former ska band member.

KOSU intern Matthew Viriyapah did this interview with her back in November of 2018 and a lot of things have changed. She has since moved to Los Angeles, California, but recently came back to perform at Pride on the Plaza in Oklahoma City and is performing again in OKC in July.

Thousands lined the OKC Pride parade route along NW 39th Street on Sunday evening.

The parade capped off a weekend of events for OKC Pride, which was celebrating 30 years since its first parade in 1987. Small gay pride celebrations in Oklahoma City date back to the 1970s.

Above are some photos we took during the parade.
