Texas Gay Pride Calendar 2018-2019 – Houston Pride – Dallas Pride – Austin Pride – San Antonio Pride

Gay Pride festivals around Texas have always been provided a great opportunity for LGBTQ Lone Star residents to share a sense of solidarity and – to be sure – let their hair down and march, dance, eat, drink, and celebrate.

Since marriage equality became the law of the land, and scores of the state’s half-million-plus LGBTQ residents are now exchanging vows, Pride celebrations Texas have taken on an extra sense of affirmation and joy. If you are in the wedding-planning stages, you may also want to make a special effort to attend some of the state’s key Pride festivals for research purposes, as many of these events feature expos and markets where local businesses – some who provide wedding services – appear. Of course, another excellent resource is our comprehensive Texas Gay Wedding Resource Guide.

One nice aspect of Pride festivals in Texas as that communities around the state consistently avoid staging their events on the same weekend.

Here’s a 2018–2019 calendar of Texas Gay Pride festivals, along with details on a handful of celebrations in the neighboring states of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. The events below are listed in chronological order.
