As the fabulous and their friends emerge on the intersection of Westheimer and Montrose, they will be warmly greeted by the gigantic Chandelier that hovers above the boulevard.

Saturday, June 23 will welcome the annual Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Pride Parade. As America's original nighttime Pride Parade, thousands of spectators will revel in the complexities of the floats and intricacies of the costumes that accompany each submission. The Parade will command the attention of Westheimer for over a mile, shutting down the thoroughfare from Woodhead to Whitney.

Come early to the gay-borhood and participate the the Pride Festival which is from 2pm-8pm. A moonwalk, waterslide, face painters will be on hand for the kids in all of us. Live music will serenade the crowds and DJ will force your feet to move. Stay for the Parade which begins at 8:45-ish...

Pride Houston brings the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community together to celebrate individual pride, commemorate our community's history, and educate society for the liberation of all people.

For a community that preaches tolerance and understanding, the GLBT people will welcome everyone and anyone who wishes to attend. Curiosities will be statisfied and senses ignited when people experience this extravegant event.
