Houston gay pride parade

The Pride and its associated events are organized by the APOGLBT, Associação da Parada do Orgulho de Gays, Lesbicas, Bissexuais e Travestis e Transexuais, since its foundation in 1999. The march is the event's main activity and the one that draws the biggest attention to the press , the Brazilian authorities as well as to the hundreds of thousands of curious people that line themselves along the parade's route. In 2009, 3.2 million people attended the 13th annual São Paulo Gay Pride Parade.

The meeting point is at the Museum of Art of São Paulo (MASP – Museu de Arte de São Paulo) right at the middle of São Paulo's postcard Avenida Paulista. Even though the meeting time is at 12 noon, the parade doesn't start to move before 2 or 3 PM. The parade is 2.6 miles long (4.2 km) and starts at Avenida Paulista (MASP), at around noon. It follows Rua da Consolação to the end at Praça Roosevelt , in Downtown São Paulo , at around 10 PM.

Strongly supported by the State and the City of São Paulo government authorities, the event counts with a solid security plan. These are last year's numbers: approximately 2,000 policemen , two mobile police stations for immediate reporting of occurrences, 30 equipped ambulances , 55 nurses , 46 medical physicians , three hospital camps with 80 beds.

The São Paulo Gay Pride Parade is heavily supported by the federal government as well as by the Governor of São Paulo and the City Mayor. Many politicians show up to open the main event and the government often parades with a float with politicians on top of it. Caixa Econômica Federal , a government bank and Petrobrás , Brazil's oil firm, have already reaffirmed their commitment to backup the event and its diversity, funding once again the event. In the Pride the city usually receives about 400,000 tourists and moves between R$ 180 million and R$ 190 million. [4]

The first parade in 1997 gathered around 2,000 participants , according to the military police. The ninth parade gathered over 2.5 million people according to the police and 3 million according to the organizers.

Pride Houston Inc For more than 37 years Pride Houston has been a central part of the local LGBT community in Houston.

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick who is currently under indictment for felony charges sent at precisely 7 a.m. Sunday Patrick a tweet with a photo with the words of Galatians 6:7. The verse reads, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

The tweet and post on Facebook that went out hours after approximately 50 people were killed at a Florida LGBT nightclub has been deleted after the backlash.

The Texas Democratic Party called for Patrick to apologize. Many online are calling for an impeachment of Patrick. Hashtags #ImpeachPatrick and #ShameOnPatrick have been circulating.
