Austin’s Pride Parade 2012 – September 22

Celebrate Inclusivity

Join other SWTX Conference Methodists and MFSA in the 2012 Austin Pride Parade on Sept 22 at 8pm!

Walkers will walk in support of full inclusion of LGBT persons in the United Methodist Church and in society.  Limited seating in convertibles will be available for anyone who would like to ride in the parade.

This year, entries will line up at the Capitol and proudly march down Congress Avenue and through the 4th Street Warehouse District. Limited free parking available at First UMC lot, and also at the surface lot next to the Texas Oil and Gas Association building, next to the FUMC Family Life Center, 13th and Lavaca.  Carpooling is encouraged.

We will be wearing t-shirts with the ‘Love Your Neighbor’ logo on front, each participant church in a different color of the pride rainbow:  Trinity (red), University (orange), First (green), Saint John’s (blue).  Order shirts from Joy Butler – joylbutler@gmail.com.

T-shirts are $10 per participant.  Register by Sept 1.  Or, you can wear a shirt that is one of the colors of the rainbow.  If your church is not participating, you are still welcome to march with us!
