Toronto Greens at Pride

Join the Toronto Greens contingent – featuring Elizabeth May and Mike Schreiner – at the Pride Festival parade on Sunday, July 3!

What: Pride Parade
When: Sunday, 2011 July 3, 1:30pm
Where: outside the Green Party of Ontario office, 14 Isabella Ave (just east of the Artful Dodger)

We will be meeting around noon. The parade begins at 2pm. We want a big group of Greens demonstrating our pride in our longstanding commitment to LGBT rights.

The parade is fun, noisy and wet. We will have a hand drum band, bubbles, water guns and a big green flag.  Please plan on wearing a Green t-shirt (see below).

Volunteer at the Greens booth

You may also help out at the Toronto Greens booth (on Alexander Street) during the weekend of July 2-3: make buttons, hand out information and collect petition signatures.

Time slots are as follows:

1.  Saturday July 2 10am-12noon setup
2.  Saturday July 2 12noon-3pm
3.  Saturday July 2 3pm-6pm
4.  Saturday July 2 6pm-8pm

9.  Sunday July 3 8pm-10pm

Please email Adriana to let her know which time slot(s) (1 through 9) you are available for.

Get a T-shirt

We want a coordinated, organized look, both for people working at the booth and especially for people walking in the parade (and even for Green supporters walking around the Festival).

Please plan on wearing a special GPC Pride T-shirt. These will be sold at cost for $15.  Alternately, you can borrow a shirt for free and layer it over whatever shirt you have on and return it afterwards.

There should be enough T-shirts for everyone, but please email Adriana to let her know you need a shirt and if you need to borrow or buy.


(Not required but appreciated for counting t-shirts) by emailing Adriana – please specify shirt size.

If you want to help organize this event, contact Adriana.

And please contact Adriana with any questions.

We hope to see you there!
