Help First Unitarian Church maintain its proud tradition of support for the LGBTQ+ community by marching with your fellow UU’s in the Capital City Pride Parade on Sunday, June 12! 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) between 11 and 11:30 a.m. The parade starts promptly at 12:00 p.m., so give yourself ample time to get there and park. 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. The parade route is about a mile on level and downhill streets.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, banners, and flags will be available for you to carry in the parade if you wish, or you are welcome to make your own. We are especially encouraging people to make and bring signs that focus on transgender rights, supporting trans-affirming healthcare for youth, DO say gay/trans in schools, NOT banning LGBTQ+ books, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and for more information.
