AIDS Group Ditched by Float Driver Over Pride Parade

It’s an event that’s supposed to bring the community together, but a group almost missed out on the 24th annual Cleveland Pride parade.
A local company offered its services – a truck and a trailer – to the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland. However, things quickly changed once the driver arrived.
“When the driver realized that he was going to be driving for the gay pride parade, he then stormed off and drove away, leaving us without a float this morning,” said Judith Pindell, director of public policy for the AIDS Taskforce.

Gay Advocates Plan Protest During SF Pride Parade

It’s pride week in San Francisco and organizers are busy getting ready for the pinnacle event: Sunday’s parade.

On Wednesday, crews were still busy completing the last of the fleet of the approximately 20 floats the public will see on Sunday.

But some gay activists are frustrated the event has so many corporate sponsors including Wells Fargo and Bank of America.

Tommi Avicolli Mecca has joined other gay activists—some from Occupy San Francisco—who have formed a group called Occu-Pride.
