Saturday, June 24, starting 10:30 a.m. Offsite.
Pride Parade, 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 staging area (near 500 West 7th Street, near City Hall). 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.
Parade step-off is at 11:00 a.m. Vehicles need to be in line by about 10:00 a.m., and people need to be in line by 10:30 a.m. 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.
Festival with UU Booth, Sawyer Point/Yeatman’s Cove, Cincinnati.
You can show support for the LGBTQ community and help people learn about Unitarian Universalism. It’s a lot of fun working a shift at the booth, talking with people, handing out information, and watching the crowd. The Pride Festival takes place at Sawyer Point and once again is free for everyone! There’s food, drinks, vendors, and entertainment to fill your Saturday afternoon with fun. Area UU congregations work together in the information booth. Booth activity starts at the end of the parade and goes until about 9 PM.
