“The George Floyd murder met us at a time where we as a community fully understand that all black lives matter. Thus, the Black Lives Matter movement is also an LGBTQ movement. Our legacy of Stonewall reminds us that great change comes at a cost,” Pride Houston Chair Emeritus Harrison Guy said in the announcement.
Pride Month is celebrated nationwide to mark the anniversary of the June 28, 1969, Stonewall riots in New York City, where members of the LGBT community pushed back against police raids.
The Houston march will take place 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. June 27.
Pride Houston had previously announced that its parade and other activities would be delayed to the fall amid social distancing concerns.
According to the announcement, the event will have volunteers distributing masks and hand sanitizer as well as water and healthy snacks.
"One of our largest goals is keeping our advocates safe and healthy in these uncertain times due to the ever-present threat of COVID-19," the organization said in its announcement.
