How to celebrate Pride Month in Houston area

The huge Pride Parade and Festival are postponed until the fall, but we have a list of other Pride parties and celebrations in the Greater Houston Area.

HOUSTON — Houston is home to one of the nation’s most popular Pride celebrations, but the biggest event of all has been postponed.

The annual Pride Houston Parade and festival were originally scheduled for Pride Month in June but a delay in city permits forced them to hold off until the fall. They don’t have the exact date yet.

Editor's note: The video above originally aired on June 22, 2019.

The Pride Run, originally scheduled for June 12, has also been postponed because of permit issues.

No worries. You can celebrate Pride all year long!
