An update on our Bisexual Contingent progress for Pride 2012:
Jan Steckel has volunteered the use of her car for the Parade. She can fit 2-3 other folks inside if anyone needs a ride instead of marching. Keep in mind there are no ins-and-outs: if you are in the car you must remain in the car for the whole time and if you are marching you cannot stop the parade to get in the car. We could use a driver if anyone wants to contribute that way.
We will decorate the car on the day so bring crepe paper in bisexual colors (purple, blue, pink), painter's tape (it's blue!), and any signs/posters/banners you may have. I am still working on getting the official banners and flags back.
We need 4 people to attend contingent monitor training and sign as being specifically for the BABN car. If we don't get that, we can't have the car. We need at least 2 people to be contingent monitors in addition to the 4 for the car.
Contingent monitor training sessions schedule here: https://register.sfpride.org/event/html/safety-training-2012.pdf
(You only need to attend the first hour of any of these and you don't have to register in advance, just turn up on time. I'm going Saturday June 2 from 1-2pm at the Center in SF.)
One theme suggested for this year is "Bisexual Invasion". The Boston Bisexual contingent is using this one so we would be in solidarity with them if we choose this theme. Think ray-guns and outer space gear. Any other ideas?
We have just enough funds to cover both the contingent & the car ($311), but if anyone feels moved to donate a few dollars for decorations, please contact Lani on email@example.com .
That's it for now! This celebration depends on YOU so let me hear your thoughts!!
Our mission is to foster a sense of bisexual/Pan+ community and promote better understanding of bisexual+ lives and issues within the larger lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) community and the public.
