We’re Obsessed with this Summer’s Houston-Centric Pride Swag

A portion of every Montrose shirt from Scrxipts will be donated to The Montrose Center.

JUNE IS HERE, which means it's time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community in Houston and beyond! The month honors the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, largely considered a tipping point of the gay-liberation movement. Here in H-Town, the city's official celebration has been bumped to July 25 due to Covid-related restrictions — but that just means that you have all summer long to rep your pride. Check out all the colorfully cool tees and more, all of which are available to #shoplocal via independent H-Town retailers!

'A Beautiful Mind'

HERE’S AN ARTFUL way to stay cool this month. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston rolls out a six-film mini-series The Mathematician Moviegoer on Saturday, July 9, beginning with Giant (1953), George Stevens’ epic if somewhat shambolic celebration of the transformative power of black gold, starring three of 1950s Hollywood’s sexiest actors: Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean.
