June 23 – UUs and the 45th Cincinnati Pride Festival
Date(s) - 06/23/2018
Pride Parade, Saturday, June 23, 2018, 11:00 AM Downtown Cincinnati
You can show support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community by marching in the Cincinnati Pride Parade. This is a family-friendly event; we had UU kids of all ages marching in the past. If you have a yellow “Standing on the Side of Love” tee shirt, this is a great opportunity to wear it. UUs will meet at the designated staging area. Look for the UU float and come early to help decorate. The “float” will be the van with the big chalice on it. For those who cannot walk the parade route there are several spots in the van available. Look for information being updated regularly at the Cincinnati UU Meetup. https://www.meetup.com/Cincinnati-UU-Meetup Join the Meetup and updates will be emailed to you.
Parade step off is at 11:00 vehicles need to be in line by about 10 people by 10:30. Please wear your yellow “Standing on the Side of Love” shirts and bring signs. We will have UU signs and SSL signs. Homemade signs, especially those about transgender rights or other LGBT issues, are most welcome. If you need shirts you can order from uuabookstore.org. The parade ends at Sawyer Point. For more information on marching with other UUs, contact MJ Pierson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
