CELEBRATION NEWS + KICKOFF POSTPONED     >>    

Pride Houston has been diligently working to bring Houston the 2021 Pride Celebration it wants and deserves. As some you may know, the City of Houston has now resumed permit processing. While our permit is currently in processing, the City of Houston will not finalize this request until June.
We had earnestly hoped that the process would be completed in time for the Kickoff, previously scheduled for May 23rd at Pearl Bar Houston. However, since we still need a hard confirmation from the city, we decided a better plan was to give you all the final fabulous Celebration information at once.
Pride Houston Kick-Off + Theme Reveal Party IS POSTPONED, BUT IT IS HAPPENING!! We are still partying at Pearl Bar with fantastic entertainment and dropping even bigger announcements — new date is Sunday July 25th. Register on eventbrite to reserve your spot for this not-to-be-missed party!

Until then, keep checking here for our growing list of Pride events and Pop-Ups. Every Sunday at Pearl, you can get discounted tickets if paying via Cash and/or Cash App for our June Line Up. Join us for Pride Houston Kick-Off + Theme Reveal Party at Pearl Bar Houston on Sunday, July 25th!

We thank you and appreciate your patience. Can’t wait to see you all again soon.

For more than 40 years, Pride Houston has been a central part of the local LGBT community in Houston.

Our core mission is to strengthen equality and increase awareness around issues important to our community such as health, safety and marriage equality. Pride Houston celebrates the individuality and diversity of every person as we all strive for acceptance from parents, friends and society-at-large.

 

From annual charity events to aiding LGBTQIA support and counseling networks, its activities continue to promote social awareness and enrich the diversity that helps the Houston community thrive.

Nearly a decade after the Stonewall Riots in New York, the Gay Rights Movement for equality made its way to Houston. Houston’s own “Stonewall Movement” occurred in June of 1977 when thousands gathered around City Hall in downtown Houston to protest against Anita Bryant. The first Pride Parade took place in June of 1978 along Westheimer Road. The current Pride Celebration is typically held the last Saturday in June to commemorate Stonewall, and the parade, which is held in the evening after sunset. This tradition began in 1997, arranged by then-Houston City Councilmember Annise Parker, where a parade ordinance was revised to allow for the nation’s only nighttime Pride Parade. In 2015, the Pride Celebration moved to its new home in Downtown Houston continuing the tradition that began on the steps of City Hall in 1977.

Pride Houston is a registered 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the state of Texas, and is 100 percent volunteer-run. Its annual June Celebration takes more than 800 volunteers a year to produce..
