TEXAS PRIDE ONLINE: A Fundraiser for Texas Orgs

TEXAS PRIDE ONLINE is an online pride celebration that brings together queer communities across the state of Texas to safely celebrate an alternative Pride and raise funds for orgs that care for Black, Trans and Queer people in Texas. Curated collaboratively by queer leaders from each city,  TEXAS PRIDE ONLINE takes the form of a digital event on June 28, showcasing performances from queer and trans artists across the state. In our roster, we have artists representing Houston, Austin Dallas, Bryan College Station, San Antonio, Corpus Christi and El Paso.

As we prepared to celebrate a different type of Pride this year, we realized it was imperative for us to use our platforms and resources to directly support organizations that work year-round to provide for our communities. This is why we have joined forces to create and fundraising event that both—pays over 30 queer artists and organizers from across Texas, and raises funds for groups taking care of our communities.

The House of Rebirth is a transformative housing initiative and community safe space led by Black Trans Women to assist Black Trans Women affected by oppression. The House of Rebirth is a network of communities, families and friends coming together and bridging the gaps, making safe spaces and holding each other up and helping out, especially in the sharing of and access to resources.

The Austin Justice Coalition (AJC) serves people who are historically and systematically impacted by gentrification, segregation, over policing, a lack of educational and employment opportunities, and other institutional forms of racism in Austin. AJC strives to narrow the scope of the criminal justice system and to usher in transformative justice that no longer relies on criminalization and punitive excess, but instead has human dignity as its core organizing principle and defers to community-based initiatives to improve public safety

allgo celebrates and nurtures vibrant queer people of color communities in Texas and beyond. We do this through cultural arts, wellness, and social justice programming by: supporting artists and artistic expression within our diverse communities; promoting health within a wellness model; and mobilizing and building coalitions among groups marginalized by race/ethnicity, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation/sexual identity in order to enact change.

Transform Houston is a non-profit organization working to transform public opinion on LGBTQ inclusive nondiscrimination protections by educating, inspiring, and mobilizing communities to reduce prejudice against gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and gender expansive people.  Our commitment to improve the lives and legal protections for transgender and gender nonconforming people, LGBTQ people of color and the LGBTQ community as a whole is a strategic investment in basic rights for all people. 

Montrose Grace Place ​provides a safe, welcoming environment for vulnerable homeless youth of all sexualities and genders, providing nourishment, healthy relationships, and hope for the future.
