TULSA -- The city of Tulsa renames Fourth Street between Elgin Avenue and Lansing Avenue as Pride Street.

Mayor GT Bynum cut the ribbon alongside community leaders Friday morning to kick off Tulsa Pride weekend festivities.

This was a seven month effort between Oklahomans for Equality, the Mayor's Office, Tulsa Young Professionals and the city of Tulsa's Traffic Department to achieve the goal of having a street recognizing Tulsa's LGBTQ community. 

The Pride Street sign stands near the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, at the corner of Fourth Street and Kenosha Avenue.

In 2017, the Equality Center helped more than 60,000 individuals with helpful resources and services.
