DUBUQUE (KWWL) - Out and Proud Dubuque is hosting a number of events this weekend as part of their Pride Weekend celebration.

The weekend will kick off with a drag show Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Dubuque/Galena's Blue Moon Room. Tickets for the show are $5.

All proceeds from the drag show, including merchandise, t-shirt sales, donations and sponsorships, are used to fund Pride Weekend events and activities.

Sunday will feature the third annual Pride Picnic, which will take place from 1 to 7 p.m. at Dunleith Park in East Dubuque, Ill. It's a free, family-friendly event that will feature informational booths, a bounce house from 1 to 4 p.m., free food and music. You're encouraged to bring chairs and beverages.

They're celebrating Dubuque's lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered, or LGBT, community.
