Houston Pride Parade & Festival

June 29

Houston’s 46th Annual Pride Parade and Festival is on Saturday, June 29, and the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod’s LGBTQIA+ Coalition (aka Q Coaliton) will be there to proclaim God’s love for all and celebrate the beautiful and diverse ways we have all been created! We will have groups of volunteers from our synod at our festival booth and all are welcome to march with us in the parade!

We are asking for donations of:

  • bottled water
  • 5-gallon water dispensing coolers
  • ice chests (bonus if they’re YETI’s or another brand that can keep ice frozen in the midst of blazing Texas summer temperatures)
  • powdered Gatorade and Liquid IV drink mixes
  • wagons and carts that can hold the weight of several cases of water
  • oranges, grapes, bananas, and granola/protein bars

Make a monetary donation to the Q Coalition on Tithely or bring physical donations to your local ELCA churches. All donations must be dropped off by Sunday, June 23.


The Gulf Coast Synod’s “Q-Coalition” has registered (with funds provided by participating congregations) for BOTH the festival and parade.

Pride Festival, June 29, 10am-4pm

  • We have one (1) booth and will donations and volunteers to help “staff.”
  • The festival is perfect for those not interested in walking in the parade but would still like to spend a couple of hours enjoying the festivities. Since space at the booth is limited, we will be working in shifts.

Pride Parade, June 29, 5:30pm-10:30pm

The more the merrier. Every year we see people cheering and tearing when they see “church people” expressing love, joy, and support for the LGBTQ+ community. It is an incredible experience. It is also an incredibly safe experience since the parade route has police and fencing throughout so those walking can spread out and enjoy. We also expect to have a truck and trailer so people can ride as well. Oh, and we need a truck and trailer. Anyone? Please text or call Dorie at 912-266-5551. Speaking of riding, wagons, strollers, scooters, etc. are also permitted / allowed.
