small.jpg Today is Pride! Be sure to come out to University Park from 11am-7pm in downtown Indy.

There will be food vendors, beer vendors, and booths from businesses, organizations and politicians. (Speaking of politicians, make sure to check out the letters from both the mayor of Indianapolis and the governor of Indiana to Pride attendees in the front of the Pride Guide!) Various groups have different things going on at their booths - you can get lei'd at the PFLAG booth, sign up to vote at the Planned Parenthood or GIFA booth, or sign up for the inevitable raffles.

Indiana Equality will not have a booth at Pride this year - instead they will have the Information Kiosks branded in the IE colors. They'll be giving out IE information and Pride Guides at the stands. IE is also launching a postcard campaign aimed at Governor Daniels. You'll want to fill one out! The postcards will be hand delivered to Governor Daniels at the start of the next legislative session. They hope to gather 15,000 postcards by the end of the year.

Unfortunately, do to all my time constraints due to helping other orgs with their booths this year, will not have a booth. (Plus, it costs money to host a booth and we don't make any money... And with Jerame and I buying a house this month, I couldn't afford it out of pocket and didn't feel right asking the other contributors to pay for it.) Next year, we'll have a booth - and you'll be able to stop by and see bilerico contributors. Until then, if you stop by an IE kiosk, at least eight of us have volunteered to work a shift or two at the IE booth.

See you at Pride!
