First Unitarian Church at the Capital City Pride Parade!
Sunday, June 9, 11:30 a.m., East Side of the State Capital Building

Help First Unitarian Church maintain its proud tradition of support of the LGBTQ+ community by marching with your fellow UU’s in the Capital City Pride Parade on Sunday, June 9!  We invite all church members, both LGBTQ+ and straight/cisgender allies, and including adults, teens, and children, to meet in the parking lot of the Lucas Building at 321 E.12th St. (on the EAST side of the State Capital Building) at 11:30 a.m. The parade starts promptly at 12:00 p.m., so give yourself ample time to get there and park.  (PLEASE NOTE: The parade begins ONE HOUR EARLIER than in earlier years!) Parking will be available in the visitor lots just south of East Walnut & E. 12th Streets and also in the Judicial Branch lot at East 12th St. & East Court Ave.

We also invite everyone to again wear your favorite First Unitarian Pride or Standing on the Side of Love t-shirt.  (Don’t have one yet? Some are available for purchase in self-serve kiosk in the gathering area after services on Sundays.) Some signs will be available for you to carry in the parade if you wish, or you are welcome to stop by the table in the gathering area after services to make your own. We are especially encouraging people to make and bring signs that focus on transgender rights, protecting LGBTQ youth (e.g., stopping bullying & conversion therapy), not using religion to justify discrimination against LGBTQ+ people, and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
