Venita “Kitty” Howard-Curtis

“I’m Venita Howard-Curtis I’m a lesbian and have been married to Alice Curtis for 4 years but have been together 6 years.  I have been volunteering with Pride Houston for almost 11 years and wouldn’t change a thing.  I started volunteering to meet people after I moved back home from Atlanta. The first time I volunteered, man my feet were hurting so bad and the sunburn was horrible (didn’t know black people could get one!), but that didn’t stop me. I kept coming back cause I just love Pride and what it stands for. Every year in June I don’t make any other plans because its pride month and, baby, I’m going to enjoy it to the fullest.  I have met some really good people that now I call my family and I just love them to death and don’t know what I would do without them or at least seeing their face. I have so many memorable times so it’s hard to lock it down to one, so I will try: 2018 was my most memorable even though we were short staffed and working our butts off, it was the look on all the faces in the crowd just knowing they were enjoying themselves. And to see my President looking beat but still holding her composure. I won’t say any names, me and my wife still laugh at this person walking down the street just smiling to himself like, yeah we did this, when you see that look at someone’s face you can’t help but to be happy and overjoyed with everything and it makes you keep coming back for more.  Even after each year you keep trying to quit. I LOVE YOU PRIDE HOUSTON!!!”
