"...The purported resignation of Jimmy Flannigan, as put forth in the aforementioned press release, was a shock. The overwhelming consensus of the LGBT community and beyond was that this year's Pride was not only a raging success but a great leap forward toward earning the public's trust of a group that had long-strived to live down the reputation as a too-conservative – and to some, repressive – organization that was to be, for the first time, in charge of not only Austin's Pride Parade, but of all of the city's Pride festival as well...."

Houston's Pride – though not perfect and certainly not to be compared to massive whole-city affairs like SF or NYC (it's still Texas, after all, y'all) – is at least focused. The festival itself is the de facto cornerstone for the spontaneous and unrestricted queers-gone-wild street festival that rages all across the 'hood..."
