WHAT A WORLD: Pride Houston’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad decision
By Nancy Ford
By now you’ve heard the news. The Pride Parade, which has wound through Houston’s traditional and historic LGBT epicenter of Montrose for more than 30 years, has relocated. The board of directors of Pride Houston (PH), the parade’s organizer, announced October 1 that the Houston LGBT Pride Celebration “will be moving to its new location in Downtown Houston for June of 2015.”
Next year’s parade starts at Walker at Milam, turns southwest at Smith, and continues for about six blocks the evening of June 20. The festival will be held in surrounding parks that same day.
