Capital Pride is this weekend, and we are counting on YOU to make it a fabulous Pride for the DC Center. A few notes
JOIN US IN THE PARADE ON SATURDAY
March with the DC Center in the Capital Pride Parade and get a free pink or green DC Center t-shirt! Our colors this year are pink and green!
We need folks to arrive early if possible, around 2:00 PM. The parade does not start till 4:30 PM, but they need us to arrive early. We will also have plenty to do. We will need your help to decorate the truck and trailer with our pink and green balloons, tissue paper, and ribbons.
We are in the yellow section and we will assemble close to 24th st and M St NW. If you have trouble finding us please check our twitter account @thedccenter. We will be tweeting our exact location there.
Plan to have a good time. The pre-parade time has a bit of a tailgating time. So allow yourself plenty of time to arrive early, get your shirt, and help us decorate. And feel free to bring something to eat or drink while you're waiting.
Please pace yourself. We have beads, and safer sex kits, and frisbees to give out to the crowd. It will be super fun, and people will no doubt be asking you to give them stuff along the parade route.Please remember we have limited give-away items and we have to make them last for the entire parade route, so go slowly and resist the temptation to give the first cute guy/gal you see on the parade route 200 beads, k?
Don't forget our photo! When the parade is over, we will take one final group photo, so stick together at the end, please. It will give us a chance to give you a final thank you and take a picture to remember!
Let us know if you are coming! If you are marching in the parade shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
JOIN US AT THE FESTIVAL ON SUNDAY
We will have a mega-booth at the festival from 11:00 AM to 6 PM. Our booth numbers are 36, 38, and 40. Our booths can be accessed through the main entrance at Pennsylvania Avenue and 7th Street, NW.
We have volunteers lined up to volunteer at the booth, however please feel free to join us, the more the merrier.
Specifically, if you are part of a program or group associated with the center (Women in their Twenties, GLOV, HIV Working Group, etc...) You'll be more successful with outreach for your group/program if you have your own volunteers lined up to work 11-6.
We will have a cooler at the DC Center Booth. So if you want to bring some soda or snacks and leave them at our table, feel free to do so. The vendor food is wonderful, but
drinks and food are a bit expensive on the street.
