Houston ISD hosting first-ever LGBTQ+ summit this weekend

The Houston Independent School District is hosting its first-ever LGBTQ+ summit this weekend. 

School officials said students in grades 6-12 and their parents/caregivers are invited to attend the Virtual HISD Pride Summit. 


Officials say the summit will focus on pressing issues faced by LGBTQ+ youth. 

The purpose of the summit is to ensure that attendees gain the tools necessary to either navigate life as an LGBTQ+ student or support an LGBTQ+ student. 

The event will take place on Saturday, April 9 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
