Texas A&M GLBT Resource Center Prepares For Pride Houston
The Texas A&M University Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Resource Center will take part in Pride Houston activities for the fourth consecutive year June 21-22, organizers announced.
“Similar to the Aggie Family, the LGBTQ+ community is bigger than one person or one group,” GLBT Resource Center Program Aide Olivia Corneau said. “It is a world of people who are often rejected or discriminated against for being who they are. Pride is a celebration of, and nod to, the history of the LGBTQ+ community. It embodies the spirit of the Aggie Family and Aggie Core Values, as people demonstrate love and respect for one another.”
The Aggie Pride: LGBTQ & Ally Former Student Network will host the Intercollegiate Pride Mixer Friday, June 21 at 6 p.m. at the Guava Lamp (570 Waugh Dr., Houston) alongside Texas Exes Pride Alumni Network, University of Houston LGBTQ Alumni Association, and Rice Alumni Pride: Rice University LGBTQIA* Alumni & Allies. Additional details and event updates are available on Facebook.
On Saturday, June 22, the GLBT Resource Center, the Aggie Pride: LGBTQ & Ally Former Students Network, Aggie Allies, Transcend, and LGBTQ Aggies will co-host a Houston Pride Festival Booth from 12 p.m.-7 p.m. at booth location F24. Organizers recommend using Entrance 2 to find the booth at the intersection of Walker and Smith streets.
The GLBT Resource Center will cap off the Pride Houston weekend by participating in the Houston Pride Parade, which kicks off at 8 p.m. Organizers encourage Aggies to take part in the parade by joining the group at staging time between 4-6 p.m. at parade location 81 on Allen Parkway.
