“This is my first full year serving with Houston Pride, but have volunteered day-of for the last two. With a background in booking talent and entertainment for the Campus Activities Board for UT-San Antonio, I am now the Entertainment Chair for the Pride festival and overseeing the BaewatchxSalvation Pool Party. I work full time as a travel agent during the week, which has allowed me to travel extensively around the world the last four years and inadvertently attend pride in other countries.
My first pride was here in Houston the summer of 2009. I was home for the summer from college, and met up a few of my friends who showed me around the festival, watched the parade, and go to some of the clubs that let in people under the age of 21. I’ve been to every Houston pride since then. Once I moved back to Houston, due to work schedules I’ve never been able to fully commit to volunteering full time until this year. I’m very excited about this coming year and all the great events and entertainment we are going to have for everyone!”
