Hundreds packed The Cheyenne Saloon for Opening Ceremony: Pride Takes Center Stage! Oct. 3.
The saloon re-opened for one evening for the cowboy-themed fete, where some guests took the opportunity to dress in their best Western gear. Stilt-walking cowboys roamed the ground floor, and a VIP area was set up on the top floor with a private bar in front of a beautiful stained-glass window. In that area, gay country singer Steve Grand met with fans for photos.
Grand performed two songs but other notable locals performed as well, including Darcel Stevens (out of drag!), Miss Sammy and two of the cast members from Disenchanted. During Grand’s songs, the crowd immediately packed the floor in front of the stage.
