Stonewall Street Festival Evening Parade.Where:
the Island City's Wilton Drive.When:
Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 7:00pm.Details:
I'm trying to put together a large group of people, dressed in their best wedding attire, to march in the Stonewall parade. We will have a "Just Married" car and lots of fun!
After the parade I will be officiating spiritual marriage ceremonies as an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church. I will also possibly be present Sunday during the day if time permits. Everyone is encouraged to come to the Sunday Street Festival dressed in their wedding attire as well.
I will personally be encouraging people to go fill out marriage license applications. Even if the State refuses to recognize same-sex marriage they have to review each and every application that comes their way. Perhaps at some point they'll get the message.Things to Bring:
* Yourself and a Spouse-to-be.
* Rings (cheap ones can be bought at Wal-Mart or any craft store in the Wedding Aisle) - if
you would like to donate extra rings I can use them to perform marriage ceremonies for
others who may not be as prepared. ^_^
* Bubbles and/or lights. Bubbles are always fun and it is a night parade, so lights or
anything that makes you a little brighter is encouraged (glow in the dark paint, anyone?).
* Signs, picket or otherwise. If you feel the need to say something about your support for
marriage equality a sign is the way to go.Things Not to Bring:
* Rice, confetti or Bird Seed. It seems awesome and fun at the time but somebody has to
clean that up later.
You do not need to be gay or part of a couple to support marriage equality. Just bring your fine self and wear something appropriately pimpin'. Straight couples are also welcome.
There's no clearly defined limit to the number of people allowed to walk with a group, so I say the more the merrier!
There is a fee to participate in the parade. It's $50. I'm paying for this out of my own pocket and my own pocket is not particularly over-flowing with cash right now. If anyone wants to chip in a few bucks it's appreciated but not necessary or required. As long as you show up to march I'll be thrilled.
