Pride Month is here, and we're kicking the celebration into high gear! Stay tuned for specials for the weekend and the Leather Fetish Pride float for the parade on Sunday, June 25!
Our line up number is pending, we usually line up along Montrose Avenue between Clark Street and Broadway.
We'll start loading up the truck at Touche at 9am, with the intent of arriving at our lineup spot at 10-10:30. The parade starts at 12 noon- with our spot in mind, we will likely be stationary until about 1pm.
Volunteers are needed to load the truck, monitor our contingent in the parade, and unload the truck after the parade is over. Email us at [email protected]
with your name and email address if you can help.
We encourage folks driving to the parade to park at Saint Joseph Hospital at the end of the parade route and use public trans or cabs to get back to the line up. This way you can retrieve your vehicle and possibly offer rides to others up to Touché once we are through the parade. On street parking anywhere in the area will be tight.
During the parade, we'll have bottled water and sodas in coolers, but bringing your own water/refreshments/snacks is encouraged, as we are anticipating upwards of 300 kinksters marching- making us one of the largest contingents in the parade!
And sunscreen. Bring sunscreen. The forecast is hot and sunny, with a chance of stormy weather. Dress accordingly and prepare for the possibility of getting wet.
Stick around after the Parade for the Post Parade Beer Bust and Cookout- $1 drafts & sodas, & some free grilled eats!
As a reminder, we're celebrating PRIDE all weekend!
Friday- ONYX Club Night
Saturday- RIPE PARTY- Pride Edition
Sunday- Post Parade Beer Bust and Cookout- $1 drafts & sodas, free food!
We're looking forward to celebrating our pride in leather (and rubber and spandex and whatever you choose) with all of you!
