This past weekend I attended Houston Gay Pride and I was floored how much I enjoyed myself. I knew I was going to have a good time, but what I DIDNT know  that I would make new friends, discover a gay coworker (who I had NO Idea was gay and is ENGAGED to her girlfriend), and FINALLY get to network with some of the people who are involved in politics in the LGBT community.

The actual parade didnt start until 8pm but there were people in the streets as early as 10am setting up tents and chairs and finding spaces to watch the festivities. There were easily over 100 exhibitors booths there giving away information about the LGBT community and encouraging people of all ages and races to join their organization. Next to the exhibitors booths were everyone’s FAVORITE fair foods sold by gay and straight people who supported the events. Funnel cake anyone?!

Lets talk about the diversity at this parade for a minute. The streets were flooded with people of completely different ethnic backgrounds. There were people of all ages and ALOT of families. The families made me feel good. Some of the families were gay and some were straight. It was so amazing to see these people teaching their kids tolerance and LOVE instead of hate and close mindedness to diversity.

The parade was great. It was so diverse and alot of the floats were extremely upbeat and funny. One man carried a sign with a donkey on it (a symbol for the democratic party) that said “who ever heard of a nice piece if elephant?”.I thought that was hilarious and extremely clever.

All in all I had a wonderful time until the wee hours of the night. I met alot of really cool people and it was nice to see the gay community in Houston really come together. Two thumbs up for Houston Gay Pride.
