Pride Houston: The Heritage Gala

Presented by Pride Houston at Rice Hotel: Crystal Ballroom & Post Rice Lofts

Pride Houston invites you to their inaugural black tie event, The Heritage Gala: Honoring the Legacy. Friday, June 13 in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Rice Hotel.

Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the United States and has its own rich history in regards to the LGBT movement. Commemorating our history has been part of Pride Houston’s ongoing mission and so this event is dedicated solely to creating an endowment so that in the near future all of Houston can experience a Houston LGBT Museum.

The Crystal Ballroom is a 1913 historic ballroom located in the heart of downtown Houston’s Rice Hotel. Originally the capitol of the Republic of Texas, this is one of Houston’s most unique and historic landmarks.
