I Love a Parade!

Yes, the ALCC was at the Pride Parade too!  On Sunday, August 13th, 2011 (or is it 3011 since that was the theme? hmmmm) we took part in the parade, marching proudly with the banner, between the CFI (Centre For Inquiry) and Monsieur Cuir.  We had quite a few join us in the parade, and we all did what we could to be festive, cheer on the crowd, and thank the crowd for coming.

It was a long parade route, starting at Guy and Rene Levesque and going all the way to Saguinet.  Not something you want to do in heels lol!  Or while wearing a full female mask with PVC outfit!  A couple of us learned a lesson or two from what we wore, but yanno… it was worth it!  Although the temperature was not as high as Saturday, we all drank a whack of water along the way.

The crowd was receptive, happy, cheering, and enjoying the parade.  Some of us were even asked to pose for photos either alone or with others!  A big thank you to the spectators again for showing up, showing support, and cheering on the parade!

“Jesus” even showed up! ;)  He marched with both us and the CFI, which made for some interesting photo ops!

After the parade, though, we simply had to find somewhere to sit, relax, and regain energy so a bunch of us from the ALCC and CFI stopped at the St Supplice for some water, beer, sangria and munchies!  The walk back to the car also turned a lot of heads too lol!

Thank you to all those who marched with the ALCC!!!!  You really made a difference and your support for both the ALCC and Pride is truly truly appreciated!
