Mormons in Pride: Los Angeles
June 7, 2014 @ June 7, 2014 - June 8, 2014 @ June 8, 2014
Hey guys! LA Pride is right around the corner! We really would love to have some support from LGBT Mormons, Families, and Friends in the area. Demi Lovato is the Grand Marshall of the parade this year so we know it will be a great event. This is a great opportunity to show your love and support and also help create an LDS presence within the LGBT community. We are doing our best to build bridges of understanding and Christ-like charity toward all of our brothers and sisters. Come be a part of something great and have tons of fun in the process! Affirmation will be participating in both the parade and in the festival. Other organizations may also be participating, so come back to this page soon for updates!
If you are planning to walk with Affirmation in the parade or help out at our booth, contact Jake Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (801) 664-4652, or Sean Baumann at email@example.com or at (801) 673-8839. We are trying to get a head count, so please let us know if you are planning to attend!
Also, join our Facebook event page for more updates, and please invite your family and friends!
