Pride March Information is Here
WE ARE IN SECTION 11 / GROUP 15. WE NEED TO BE LINED UP ON EAST 37TH STREET, BETWEEN 5TH AND MADISON, BY 1:00PM.
(Although we probably won't start marching right away.)
THE NYPD DOES NOT ALLOW MARCHERS TO JOIN THE MARCH ENROUTE.
All who are able should meet on East 37th Street.
The float will join us once we are on 5th Avenue.
If you need to ride the float, please contact Paul Lane at email@example.com
The Episcopal Church has, for years, been in the forefront of the full inclusion of LGBT persons in all of the sacraments. While we may not yet have attained all of our goals, we are well on our way. This is one of the most visual and important ways that we have of reaching out to the LGBT Community, many of whom have given up on or been driven away from any organized religion.
Integrity NYC Metro has partnered with LGBT Concerns Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and many parishes and individuals arranged for a float and DJ in the 2011 LGBT Pride March.
The March takes place on Sunday, June 26, 2011. It will proceed down Fifth Avenue from the lower 30s to its usual end point on Christopher and Greenwich Streets in the West Village. All you need to do to participate is show up. All are encouraged to come and bring their parish banner.
If you have any questions, please contact Paul Lane at 646-456-8705 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Partial funding for the float has been provided through a grant from Integrity USA.
We apologize for the delay in getting this information to you, however, NYC Pride did not publish the Order of March until Monday, 20th June.
