Upon Us Now

The month of the Pride Parade is upon us! Or we're in it. Whatever.

Anyway, these Pride people really play it down to the wire. I was hoping to have some information by now on exactly where we should convene on the day of, but all I know is sometime between 9 and 10 am somewhere around the Embarcadero. Apparently, they're still working on the "line-up" and should get back to me soon.
DJ and I scheduled a BBQ and art party (making posters, costumes, shirts, etc) on the evening before the parade, 6pm, at his house. I'm working on getting all the details up here. Believe me, I'll tell you all where and when exactly we're meeting on the 28th literally 30 seconds after I find out. We've got an intrepid costume-maker sewing a banner for us, which is really awesome of her. The parade committee also had this to say: "Work on your 30-second repeatable routines to do along the Parade route, to give your contingent's presence and message greater impact." Okaaay...

We have about 25 people confirmed so far for the parade...but I think we can have many more by the time Pride actually rolls around. This is the time to ask your friends if they'd be down to participate-- lots of allies will be joining us, so no one will be the only one of their kind. I'm definitely a mixture of nervous and very thrilled that this is all coming together.

Yaay! You're right, this will be something for the asexual history books.

It sucks that I can't be there as I live in Europe, but I assure you my heart will be with you all <3 I'm sure you'll have an amazing day!

costumes?? what sort of costumes?!

Ily said...

Aww, warm fuzzies directed towards Europe. And there was some talk of cake costumes, although I was just going to wear my "asexuals party hardest" shirt and call it a day. I think as long as you have something purple and/or asexually themed on, you'll fit right in, costume or not.

Woo hoo! I'm so excited!! I suppose my purple sweater would count- but it'll probably be too hot for that, huh? :P
Did the parade people ever mention how long the actual walking part takes?
