Omaha's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Parade was at 4 p.m. on June 12, 1994. Roughly 325 people marched in the parade. The year's theme was "Stonewall 25: A Global Celebration," commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. It appears this was the first year "Transgender" was included in the title of the celebration. 

After the parade, a rally, community picnic and performance by Omaha band Lavender Couch took place at Turner Park (31st and Farnam Streets). The parade was sponsored by A.N.G.L.E. (Achieving New Gay and Lesbian Endeavors), while the rally at Turner Park was sponsored by local organization E.A.G.L.E. (Employee Association for Gays and Lesbians).
