Pride Houston and COVID-19 Safety Preparedness     >>    

Pride Houston understands there is much concern, and that we all have a responsibility to help slow the spread of  Covid-19 in our city.  Therefore, all in-person pride events for the year, including the Celebration and Parade, are cancelled. We must take the best course of action for the city we love, and the LGBTQ+ community. At this time, that means staying apart. Please stay tuned for news and updates about upcoming virtual events.

Stay home. Stay safe. Stay hopeful! We can get through anything as a community if we take care of each other now.

#Pride40: A Celebration of the History & Heroes of Pride

It was June of 1978 when a sparse number of brave, determined gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people and their allies took to the streets of Houston for the first official Pride Parade. Nearly a decade before, the now infamous Stonewall Riots had galvanized the LGBTQIA+ community across the nation, and the movement that continues today, began.

In the 40 years since, Houston has seen a great deal of changes, as has the LGBTQIA+ community. Battles for equality have been hard fought, and won. Marriage equality in every state– a reality those who marched in the first Houston Pride Parade® probably thought they would never experience. This year, Pride Houston® looks back at the accomplishments of those that came before, honors those whose lives were taken, and seeks a path towards an even brighter future.

#Pride40 is about honoring the past, and celebrating the future.

#Pride40 is about you: your stories, your struggles and triumphs. It’s about those whose shoulders we stand on, and those creating history, today. #Pride40 is about celebrating each and every one of us that make up the beautiful LGBTQ+ rainbow. Happy Pride, everyone… wear your colors, and your history proudly.
