Friday, July 26, 2013
To: All MoveUP Members in the Lower Mainland

MoveUP stands with the LGBTQ community in pride and solidarity. Your union will be joining other BC Federation of Labour affiliates in the 2013 Vancouver Pride Parade on Sunday, August 4. Any member who’s interested is invited to join us marching in the parade with our banner, flags and swag to hand out. Please make sure to bring water and wear comfortable shoes and sun protection. Note, the parade can take a couple of hours to complete.

When: Sunday, August 4. All marchers should arrive no later than 11:30 a.m.

Where to meet: On Thurlow - between Barclay and Haro (Staging Section C, West side, Position 5)

If anyone is available on Saturday, August 3, we are also looking for volunteers to help decorate the float. The decorating party will take place in the back parking lot of the BCGEU office, 4911 Canada Way starting at 10 a.m.

The Pride parade provides an opportunity to show our continued support of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender community, their friends, allies and supporters in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBT community. We hope to see you on August 4th.
