The OCAD Student Union (OCADSU) invites students, faculty and staff and friends of OCAD to represent the university for the first time ever at this year’s Toronto Pride Parade, taking place Sunday, June 29. The group will meet at 11 a.m. in spot #156 on Bloor Street East (east of Church Street; the number will be marked on the pavement).

Participants are asked to think “art and design” in terms of costume and consider wearing one of the OCAD colours (pink, blue, orange, green or purple), and everyone is welcome to march, dance, walk, jog, bounce, skateboard, rollerblade, or just move! Please bring your own water bottle for refilling.

Several daring participants are having their torsos painted with famous artworks by a professional body painter. One more female participant is required.

PRIDE CHECKLIST:

- Sun protection (hat, sunscreen)
- Water (refillable bottles; water will be available)
- Boas, Bubble Makers and Bondage gear!

The general Rule of Pride is anyone with a water gun gets wet!
This will not mix well with body paint!! Bring at your own discretion!

To find out more, to help with decorating our mini-float the "OCADDY", to have your body painted or if you have mobility considerations, please contact OCADSU Office Manager Tre Whan at 416-977-6000, Ext. 341.
