The Montrose Softball League Association (MSLA) is dedicated to the promotion of amateur softball for all persons, age 18 and older, regardless of race, creed, religion, sex, or national origin, with special emphasis placed on the participation of members of the LGBTQ community of Greater Houston. Our goal is to provide a sports outlet for individuals as a way to meet and interact with like-minded people in the spirit of friendly competition in an environment that promotes good health and fitness. The MSLA is divided into various divisions relative to a player's skill level and we also encourage the involvement of non-LGBT and non-playing members to support the many activities and beneficiaries the MSLA supports.

This is a complicated situation that transcends basketball, and we will work together with the NBA, all levels of government and public health officials on the best path forward. We will continue to keep you updated with new information as it's received.


On Thursday, April 2, the Houston Rockets will host Pride Night. The game, which is presented in alliance with the Greater Houston LGBT Chamber of Commerce, will take place at Toyota Center as the Rockets take on the Golden State Warriors at 7PM.
