Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and, while many people outside of the Houston area might not realize it, the city has been very supportive of its LGBTQ+ population. One of the best ways to see this is by going to one of the many Pride events you can find in Houston throughout the month of June.
While Houston locals may be able to witness Houston Pride, most people out of the city probably do not think of Houston as a civil rights leader for the LGBTQ+ community. Houston Pride is hoping to change that perception.
Houston has been accepted as a candidate for the World Pride Celebration in 2023. If Houston gets selected, Houston could not only expect a bigger and better pride celebration, but would also get a chance to highlight its diversity to the rest of the world.
Shattering stereotypes and misperceptions is a huge part of what Pride means to much of the LGBTQ+ community, and if Houston gets the chance to host World Pride 2023, then the city gets its own chance to shatter some misconceptions people may have about Houston, Houstonians, and Texans.
