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.
