But after a lawyer for True Texas Project went to the City of Fort Worth, which owns the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, city officials ordered the venue's management on Friday to reinstate the event and reverse its cancellation.

"WE WON!!!" True Texas Project founder Julie McCarty posted on social media on Friday.

Botanic Garden CEO Patrick Newman did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

McCarty previously blamed the backlash on “woke attacks” by the Tribune to “silence TTP and prevent us from advancing the grassroots movement across Texas.” McCarty and True Texas Project have not responded to repeated requests for comment about the event since Friday.
