GAPSN LA Pride Parade - June 9th!

posted May 30, 2013, 9:34 PM by Ericson Herbas   [ updated May 30, 2013, 9:38 PM ]
GAPSN Friends & Family, join us in celebrating pride by marching with GAPSN along with our community partners.

Please only RSVP "YES" if you're actually marching with GAPSN so that we can get an accurate head count.

Sunday, June 9, 2013
Arrive at 9:00 a.m.

If you arrive after 10:30 a.m., please proceed directly to the parade staging area at the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Crscent Heights Blvd. The parade starts immediately at 11am. Once we start moving, it's hard to catch-up.

David Hong's House
1032 N. Ogden Dr.
West Hollywood, CA 90046

Parking: Please park on the street. Arrive early for best parking in the neighborhood. Permit parking restrictions will be lifted during the weekend.

BREAKFAST ASSEMBLY (9am - 10:30am):
A yummy FREE breakfast wil be provided to all marchers. It's also a great opportunity to socialize, meet & greet all the other marchers in our API contingent. Please arrive on time! We'll depart David Hong's place and start walking to the staging area  at 10:30am.

T-shirts will be provided FREE at the breakfast (we ask that you wear these while you march with the GAPSN contingent).

Sunblock, hat, comfy shoes, hand sanitizer, camera and extra cash (it's $25 to enter the official Pride Festival booths) after the parade is over.

A few things to consider before you participate in this "public" parade: (1) if you are NOT OUT, camera-shy, or hate the paparazzi that you think follows you everywhere, (2) have real issues with personal space because it gets really crowded, (3) uncomfortable with the heat, loud noise, and walking slowly for 1.5 hours -- then it's probably not a good idea to participate. But with all these challenges, every year is still fun and memorable!

Please drop by our Booth at the festival in West Hollywood Park (near the swimming pool & basketball courts area). Say hello and hang out.
