June of marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots , an event commonly considered to be the spark that ignited the modern LGBT rights social movement in America. While the entire month sees Pride celebrations across town including a genderless cocktail party, baewatch pool party, and closing tea dance , the Houston Pride Festival and Parade is the main attraction. Where and when does the action start? The Pride Parade follows shortly after, from pm. The route begins at Smith and Lamar, then continues up Smith Street to Walker, where it will make a right turn and run along Walker to Milam before making its final right turn down Milam to its end point at Jefferson.

Philly Pride Parade and Festival - Philly Pride Presents
To download high-res images, visit photo gallery. Sure, I can tell a visitor about the shows in the Theater District or why a beer-can-covered house is worth a visit, but when was the last time I checked these places out myself? Read on for my highlights. There are opportunities to see staff feed the seahorses, saltwater fish and play with the tigers, too. Yes, tigers. Expect to spend a couple of hours here, meandering from exhibits like the Louisiana Marsh and the shark-infested Gulf of Mexico tank to the rainforest room and the Sunken Temple exhibit, the latter of which showcases a foot-long Tiger Reticulated python. While most of the museum is geared towards kids, there was plenty to pique my interest, too - especially the postcard confession gallery, where guests are invited to write an anonymous secret on a postcard, as a way to relieve stress.

We have never been inside but have been to pride several years in a row since they moved pride to around city hall. It's a wonderful area and feels like a safe space where we can be ourselves. My review is for the exterior grounds. I've never been inside the building itself but when I worked downtown - or now meet friends there - it was lovely it sit on the edge of the large reflection pond to eat lunch or visit. I think the limestone building itself is nice and a wonderful contrast to some of the newer metal and glass skyscrapers that now loom over our city hall.
