What an exciting time of year! If you have never experienced the excitement of marching in the Houston LGBT Pride Parade, please consider marching with PFLAG Houston on the evening of June 23. The special bond between PFLAG Houston and the LGBTQ community is contagious, as evidenced by the roar of the crowd when PFLAG comes into view. Please remember to stop by PFLAG Houston’s booth at the Pride Festival that afternoon to get to know some of the many passionate, fun-loving PFLAG members.
