Houston, TX- At Pride Houston’s Kick Off event on Sunday, July 25, 2021 the organization announced it would host a smaller block party in the historic Montrose neighborhood instead of its larger annual Pride parade. We want to make very clear that this was not a City of Houston decision.“ We [Pride Houston] were looking forward to bringing back the parade this year since some COVID restrictions have been relaxed. But as new COVID infections are rising and the presence of the Delta variant we think it would be more prudent to host a smaller capacity event.” says Thasia Madison Pride Houston President.At the kickoff event Pride Houston explained that permitting had been secured from the City of Houston for a September 25th Celebration Festival and Parade, but Pride Houston independently decided to scale back their annual event. “However, it was our decision to postpone the parade until 2022. We love our community and want to keep it safe.
