In the past events, more than 200 participants wore colorful T-shirts, carried flags and banners, and tossed UTHealth Houston fans, bracelets, and other items into the crowd. To see the celebration of diversity during the 2019 Pride parade, view the university’s Flickr album. Photos from last year’s event “Dine with Pride” can be found online: Flickr album.
