SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Members of the Shreveport Q-Prom are hosting a “Field Gay” event for people to relive their childhood memories of field day.

This is an event to celebrate Pride Month and also raise funds to help the Philadelphia Center.

Field Gay offers many traditional field day games like a three-legged race and kickball. This will be the first year the event take place.

Hosts say you can expect a lot of fun, with plenty of games and food vendors on site.

“What a better way to get people to step out of their home than getting out to a park, exercising, doing some childhood games for field day, and having people have fun together, right? We have been cooped up for a year, it’s Pride Month and we wanted to make sure people are able to meet other folks,” said Steven Knight.

Not only are there fun games to participate in, booths with local vendors were set up beside the activities. One of the booths was the Shreveport-chapter of Free Mom Hugs.

“What we mainly do is we show up to events, we hug our kids, we give them a chance to get that parental love that they may be missing. We are moms. We are dads,” said Sherri Smith.
