Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

Suit yourself! Here's a quick run-down of the bare minimum you need to know:

  • Park at the Market Center DART Station. Buy a transit ticket and leave the receipt on your dashboard.
  • Walk to the staging area at the interesection of Cedar Springs and Douglas Avenue.
  • Don't talk to protestors, do not throw things, do not swear or make obscene gestures, and do not take your clothes off.
  • Meet the pick-up group at Robert E Lee Park for a ride back to the DART station.
  • If you have any other questions or need my phone number, find me on Facebook and send me a private message, or email me at kyle.r.deep@gmail.com
  • If you've never met me before and want to find me on parade day, look for the 7' tall rainbow drag queen that is stomping around in the staging area.

A Few More Things

  • The parade theme this year is Deep in the Heart of Pride, so bring your pile of gay cowbay hats.
  • Bring and drink lots of water, it's going to be hot!
  • Bring some sunscreen too. An umbrella is a fabulous choice if you don't want to feel all slimy.
  • Bring your own snacks - we will not be providing lunch or dinner.
  • We will have one support vehicle that can hold three to four people that or unable to walk the entire parade route on their own.
  • Show your atheist and LGBTQ pride by wearing a t-shirt. This is your time to shine!
