NightSide with Dan Rea – Rundown for June 7, 2019

Straight Pride Parade Says They Are Serious! The organizers of Boston's Straight Pride Parade are in studio with Dan and they say they are not poking fun at the LGBTQ community. Instead they claim they are trying to promote diversity. Mayor Marty Walsh says if they follow all the rules they will get a parade permit. Do you support the effort?

Do Kid's Games Like Dodge-ball Teach Bullying? A new study out of Canada claims dodge-ball is not just a children's game, it is a tool of bullying.

A school district in Indiana issued an apology after a special needs teacher awarded an 11-year-old student with autism a trophy naming him the "most annoying male" of the school year.

In Texas, a high-school teacher was fired after asking President Trump to remove illegal-immigrant students from her school, in what she thought were private tweets. Do you agree with the outcomes of either of these cases?
