Do It

Celebrate gay pride by lending a hand at a festival or parade.

Day 34: T'is the season for Gay Pride! All over the country since May, festivals and pride parades have been kicking off left and right. That means plenty of ways you could be helping out -- like by manning a booth at a festival or joining a group to walking in a parade. Of course, you could always show your support simply by attending!

You can show your support while enjoying a good show, too: for example, Demi Lovato will serve as grand marshal and perform at the L.A. Pride parade in West Hollywood this weekend, while Jennifer Hudson will perform during Chicago’s Pride Fest.

Consult the Gay Pride Calendar (linked below) to find the nearest event to you. Because I have a schedule conflict that prevents me from attending my own local pride parade here in LA, today I helped one of my volunteer groups BFLA make hundreds of rainbow fans to hand out (this weekend should be a scorcher)! So remember helping prep for and set up the festival is an option you could consider, as well.
