Showing pride

Students wear tie-dyed T-shirts on Rice's float in the pride parade.

Wearing Rice T-shirts tie-dyed in rainbow colors, students, faculty, staff and alumni rode on or marched with Rice’s float in the Houston LGBT Pride Parade June 27 – the day after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. The float featured a photo of two Rice alumni – Houston Mayor Annise Parker ’78 and Ryan Levy ’97, the male grand marshal for Houston’s 2015 pride celebration.

Rice alumni Annise Parker and Ryan Levy are pictured on Rice's float for Houston's pride parade.
