These issues are courtesy of Jack Valinski, who was Editor
for many of the issues and had varying roles in Pride over
these years, including Chairman of the Board. They were
issued in an effort to inform and involve the community
in the work done by Pride Houston, as the Parade
belongs to everyone.

The newsletters were issues on a sporatic basic several
times a year and varied from 8 1/2"x11" format to
newspaper style, 11"x14", and averaging mostly 12 pages.
In addition to giving he status of the efforts toward the annual
Pride Week and Parade, it always included a community
calendar which now a valuable historical resource describing
what organizations existed in Houston and
their own activities.
Also included were articles of interest from other publications.

I do not know what issues may have preceded 1988 or followed
2001, and would apprciate any help filling in gaps. I will note
that likely the major reason for the newsletters being stopped
would be the internet and decreased usage of printed means
of communicating Pride information.

In a number of cases when the newsletters were particularly
thin or issued closely together I scanned them into a single file.
The January and February 1988 issues were the only one of a
smaller page size, 7"x 8 1/2".
Note the misspelled "Lesbain" on the 1993 one....!
