Founded in August of 2021 by Round Rock, TX Arts Ambassador and resident Richard Parson, he recognized the immediate need to establish a PRIDE event for the city he loves. Within a few days, he had reached out to the community of people he knew from a decade of volunteerism, friendships and allies. He envisioned an event to bring together a diverse community to celebrate love, unity and pride. This became the foundation for the first Round Rock Pride Event.
Recognizing the need for support, his vision is to offer a community of young, and young at heart, the freedom to express themselves in a space of safety and acceptance without judgement.
RR Pride Values...
We must know and honor our history.
