Questions about Wausau gay pride parade

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)  There are questions surrounding Wausau's Gas Pride Parade that's scheduled for June 22. Most members of the gay community say they've never heard of the parade organizer, Daxx Bouvier. City officials say someone else filled out the paperwork for the event. Some people say Bouvier lives in California, but that hasn't been confirmed.

WAOW-TV is reporting that the parade organizer still owes money for the event, and that proof-of-insurance, which is required, hasn't been provided yet.

Some members of the local gay community are distancing themselves from the parade. They instead have organized a 'March For Equality' - also a week from Saturday - at the same time as the parade along the same route, from Marathon Park to the 400-block downtown.
