5. 2017 Houston Gay Pride Parade
Held annually since 1979, the Houston Gay Pride Parade takes place in June to celebrate the LGBTQ members of the community. It commemorated the 1969 police raid on Stonewall Inn in New York City. This event is held on the 4th Saturday of June, and the highlight is definitely the parade, being held after sunset since 1997. Every year, there is a specific theme assigned to the parade, and 2017’s theme was Wonderland- Escape the craziness of today’s real world. The parade has been constantly growing in numbers, with people from all over the worlds coming to Houston to join in on the celebration of gay rights. It is currently the largest and most attended gay pride event in Texas, and the second largest Houston-organized event in the city after Houston Rodeo.
