Area UUs to march again in Pride Parade

The annual Cincinnati Pride Parade and Festival is Saturday, June 24. In this era when there are sweeping anti-trans bills in state legislatures, and even bills that undermine the rights of some gay, bi, and queer persons, organizers hope for a huge showing of UUs! Members and friends from the Unitarian Universalist Churches of Greater Cincinnati (UUCGC) have participated for many years.

UUs in the PARADE
Participants start lining up at 10 a.m. The parade starts at 11 a.m. at 7th and Plum Streets downtown; Find the people in yellow clothes and with yellow banners. Our float is a minivan with a huge flaming chalice on top. The parade route is here: Carpool, bicycle, bus, just be there!

UU booth at the FESTIVAL
The booth is staffed in shifts from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Pride Festival takes place at Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove, 705 East Pete Rose Way. It’s free for everyone. There will be food, drinks, vendors, and entertainment. More information is on the Cincinnati Pride Festival information page.

Volunteers will help people learn about Unitarian Universalism at the UU Booth. It’s a lot of fun working a shift at the booth, talking with people, handing out information, and watching the crowd. There have been years in which we connected with at least 700 people!

UUs, please sign up using this Sign-up Genius form. Set up and break down especially need help. Do something to show your Pride! For more information on UU involvement in the parade or booth, contact MJ Pierson at
