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.

Lighter Side of Pride – Part 8

Dawn’s Story –

So, this past weekend I had a “fat girl moment,” albeit a good one.  If you’re a fat girl who has ever lost more than 10 pounds, you’ll get this:  I got on my scale & saw that I had lost another 3 pounds, bringing me back to 152 & a total 8 pound weight loss in 2 weeks.  I admit I did a little dance in my bathroom.  Then it occurred to me: I wonder if my pants fit.  Usually I wait until I hit a weight ending with -0 or -5 before I do the “try on formerly tight clothes” thing.  Instead, I did it.  I went to a closet & put on a pair of jeans.  Low and behold, they fit.  Long story short, the next 20 minutes was spent trying on pants & either doing a dance or pout when they did/did not fit.  I have 3 more pairs of jeans, 2 more pairs of work pants, & 4 pairs of cords that I couldn’t wear last week. 

Not all “fat girl moments” are bad!
