The Greater Houston LGBT Chamber of Commerce held its signature event, Pride In Business, to celebrate Pride Month and the Chamber’s five year anniversary, as well as launch the Pride In Business Awards. This annual event is a unique opportunity to celebrate the important role of LGBTQ+ and Allied businesses in the Greater Houston economy.
As part of its dedication to enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion across the business and for its stakeholders and communities, Alliance Data has announced an ongoing partnership with The Trevor Project - the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
The award‑winning actress, producer and equal rights advocate joined T‑Mobile’s latest Talking with Trailblazers event in celebration of Pride month to discuss the realities of the current transgender experience.
“One of my favorite Brené Brown quotes is, ‘When we deny our stories, those stories define us. But when we can own our stories, we can write a brave new ending.’”
In honor of Pride Month, we highlight Customer Resolution Expert Joe Richards and his community photo project “Proud to Be,” which T‑Mobile has adopted companywide this year. Joe curates experiences as an art form. His masterpiece? Inclusion.

Joe Richards is many things — but first, he was a kindergartener.
“I think most people know the kind of field trip — all the little kindergartners take their lunches and coats and pile into a bus together and head to a museum,” he remembers.
“At the end of ours, they asked all the kids to present what they wanted to be when they grew up. I knew I wanted to be an artist, but my strongest memory from that moment is listening to everyone else’s answers and wanting to understand the ‘why’ behind them.”
