The final days of June are upon us, which means Pride Month is about to come to an end.

Fortunately, there are a few more events popping off in the next few days, both in the streets and online, that Houstonians who support the LGBTQ+ community can check out. Look for a mix of marches and online events this weekend.

Friday

Community-based organization Bee Busy Inc. will have a free webinar called The History of PRIDE. Bee Busy’s education team will speak on the history of Pride and the continuing fight for LGBTQ+ equality. 1:30-2:30 pm.

Consulado General de Mexico en Houston will host a Pride Virtual 2020 party. While details are scarce, it’s a Latin party — so you know they will be celebrating diversity and having an exciting time while doing it. 5-6 pm.

Saturday

Houston City Hall will have the mouthful that is the It Started with a Riot! Pride Houston 2020 Equality March + Rally. There will be many speakers on hand, including activists from the Black Lives Matter movement. 9:30 am-3 pm.
