On June 26th a number of Bay Area atheist groups will participate in an atheist contingent in the Gay Pride Parade. We will stress the role that religion plays in rationalizing the oppression of the LGBT community. We will march for freedom and respect for all minorities. This community, along with women, are our natural allies. By supporting these communities we can gain allies and members. Let's show the Bay Area that we are serious about ourselves.
Please contact Larry ([masked]) if you would like to participate. Also we need from four to six trained contingent monitors for our group. The trainings start on June 7th, so please commit to helping us soon. Training sessions last one hour and are free.
Please bring some water as we will be marching for several hours.
We shall meet at 10:30 AM at Assembly Area K on Beale between Mission & Howard. Please allow time to deal with walking from the BART Embarcadero Station, etc. There is no nearby parking.
Look for the our banners: Atheist Advocates of SF, SF Atheists and East Bay Atheists. Don't hesitate to call Larry on his cell at[masked].
Anyone who has completed the monitor training and not yet contacted Larry should do so immediately.
Let's have some fun while we increase the community's awareness of who we are.
