HOUSTON — Pride Houston partnered with the Houston Rockets Wednesday for Pride Night and made several announcements about changes to its organization, including a new exclusive English-speaking media partnership with KHOU 11.
Pride Houston announced it is rebranding with a new logo and theme that will celebrate Houston's LGBTQ+ community year-round.
"Pride Houston is now Pride Houston 365," the organization said. "As of 2022, no longer will we only celebrate in June...We will continue to strive to promote equality and inclusion through celebration and plan for numerous LGBTQIA+ events all year long to support our community."
Under the rebrand, Pride Houston said its raising funds for youth scholarships and offering ongoing health and wellness education.
A new website will be launched in April 2022.
