The art form of flagging, commonly seen in gay nightclubs, is certainly gaining mainstream acceptance.
At last year’s Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving halftime show, Phillip Bryan, pictured, and his merry troupe of flaggers twirled about Texas Stadium as Sheryl Crow performed “If It Makes You Happy.”
And the first spectacle that emerged on the catwalk at last month’s Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS Dallas Collection were Bryan and company swirling hypnotizing acrobatics of fluorescent silk.
If you’ve ever desired to join the flagging fun in the great outdoors, the group Dancer Texas celebrates the sixth annual “Flagging in the Park–Dallas” on Easter Sunday at Lubben Plaza.
