HOUSTON – On Saturday, thousands of people packed downtown for the Pride Houston Celebration and Parade.

This year, there are six Grand Marshal’s and KPRC 2 spoke to one of them.

“I’m a lawyer, a community organizer, a philanthropist, I’m Black,” Torrence said. “I’m queer, and I’m proud to be here.”

The Louisiana native turned Houstonian also serves as the President of the National LGBTQ+ Bar Foundation, he’s a board member for the Alley Theatre and the LGBT Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.

“I’m also heavily, heavily involved in the Hollyfield Foundation which gives grants to non-profit organizations across our community that are dedicated to equal rights for our LGBTQ people and people who are impacted by HIV and AIDS as well,” Torrence said.

Torrence is this year’s ‘Male Identifying Grand Marshal’ for the Pride Houston Parade.

“It is the honor of a lifetime because, for me, PRIDE is all about celebrating those who fought so hard for LGBTQ+ people,” he said.

He and his partner even painted their door rainbow colors to celebrate the accomplishment.
