This tribute site is meant to be a place where the former Patrons of Chances can keep up with each other and what's going on in the community. Whether you called Chances home or not, odds are, if you frequented the bar, you had more good times than bad. Many thanks to the owners and their families for keeping Chances going for 16 years. No haters here, please.

Too often, women are left out — intentionally or otherwise — when it comes to citywide Pride celebrations. However, this is hardly the case when it comes to the city of Houston. It is free and open to the public as is the Houston Pride Parade which is that night at pm. You can get tickets in advance for the After Party, which is highly recommended, as the event is sure to reach capacity.
