Wesley-Knox at London Pride Parade
July 28 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our Inclusivity Committee would like to invite you to walk with us in London’s Pride Parade!
Where: The Parade starts at the Western Fair and ends at Victoria Park. Join us for the whole walk or plan to meet us partway and finish the walk with us.
When: Gathering at the Western Fair starts at noon, the parade starts around 12:30.
WHY WALK TOGETHER?
. to create a Regional cluster of folks interested in fun, fellowship, public witness and justice-focused community
. you want to stand up and say: LGBTQueer and Christian Without Contradiction
. to support LGBTQ & gender non-conforming MINISTERS
. to affirm the United Church’s 30+ years of work around welcome and celebration of God’s rainbow people
. because you believe walking in the Pride Parade as church is protest and part of our faith work
. as part of your ongoing commitment as an Affirming Community of Faith (but you don’t have to be)
. maybe there is a justice issue you’d us to address as we walk together
. because you want to show your gay uncle or your trans grandchild that you love them!
. because you have an idea to share (great!)
. because you’ve always wanted to walk in the Parade
. because, in general, you enjoy glitter
