GLIDE Pride Team

Our mission is to educate the world about social justice, unconditional love and acceptance of the LGBTQQ community.

The GLIDE Pride Team is a dynamic group of diverse, creative, highly energetic LGBTQQ and Hetero-fabulously straight “cheerleaders” who take great pride in leading GLIDE’s efforts to promote equality for the LGBTQQ community. Our mission is to educate the world on social justice, celebrate unconditional love and acceptance, have a bold presence, support GLIDE's mission and give back to marginalized communities in need. We host monthly meetings and a number of community events to raise awareness of our group’s mission, cause and purpose.

 

PRIDE 2017

 

We are excited that you will be joining the GLIDE Contingent in the SF Pride Parade this year on the Double Decker bus. 

 

Glide is Contingent #129 and will be parked somewhere around Spear and Folsom in area L-2.

 

If you are bringing guest(s), please let us know their names so that we can properly prepare for them.

Steve Hyzer will be the Bus Captain, so please see him at the parade location if you have questions on Sunday.

 

THERE WILL BE NO ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR THINGS, so if you can't carry it, please don't bring it. We will not be using the vehichles for storage.

 

We are still in need of 10 more trained wheel monitors. If you have anyone who is willing, please have them watch the 10 minute video and fill out the survey which is 5 questions. Be sure to have them identify GLIDE as the contingent.

PRIDE TRANSPORTATION: Want to participate in Pride, but don't think you can walk the route? Well Glide's got you covered! If you need this service, it is essential that you let us know by June 20. You can sign up in Freedom Hall. It is a double decker bus this year, so there is plenty of room for everyone whether you wish to ride up top in the sun or if you would rather be in the air conditioned bus. Come one, come all.  okay, limited seating for 70 folk, so sign up in Freedom Hall. * Note You will be able to off-board the bus at 8th and Market or be dropped off at GLIDE. While Steve Hyzer will be our bus captain to be sure that everyone who needs assistance on boarding and off boarding, there will be no-one there to watch your stuff! Please do not plan to store your things on the bus. NO ONE IS WATCHING OR COLLECTING THINGS AFTERWARD!!! Your things are your responsibility so pack light and without entitlement. 

 

PRIDE WEEKEND EVENTS:

2017 TRANSMARCH: The Glide Pride Team will be marching in the Trans-March on Friday, June 23 at 6pm. The Glide Contingent will meet at 5pm in Delores Park near the "Big Tree". Find more information about the Transmarch at http://www.transmarch.org/trans-march-2017/. Your point person is Larry Byes (415) 400-9036.

GPT SPONSORED BOOTH-VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  The Pride Team will be sponsoring a booth on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday June 25 at the Pride Street Festival in the Civic Center. We are in spaces I-13 and I-14 which appear to be located on Gough and Folton. For Homeland Security purposed, they have closed off our previous location, but we are pretty close to there. They will be doing intense security again this year, so be prepared to pack minimally for entrance to the festival.

I can't even begin to say how much FUN we have!!! If you are interested in volunteering to help with set-up, breakdown, or working the both on either day, please sign up at the information table in Freedom Hall after services or email Paula Farmer at prideteamglide@gmail.com
