Serving as a community band in Houston's gay, lesbian, and transgendered community, the Houston Pride Band has several groups perform at community events throughout the year as well as concerts and parades. We also provide a fun social experience for musicians.
The Houston Pride Band has a proud 30-year history. Originally known as the Montrose Marching Band, the organization was formed by a small group of musicians in 1978 as a way to make new friends and to provide entertainment for Houston's gay and lesbian community.
The Houston Pride Band is a member of the Lesbian and Gay Band Association (LGBA) , a national musical organization made up of over twenty-five bands across the nation and around the world. With LGBA, members of the Houston Pride Band have been able to participate at every Gay Games, two Presidential Inaugurations, and conferences throughout the world.
