Our Leader Elizabeth proposed that AgoL donate our spot in the Pride Parade as follows, and the girls wholeheartedly agreed to do so:
After long discussions, our club has decided to donate our spot in the Pride parade to my daughters’ Gay Straight Alliance ( GSA ). My daughters’ GSA group was unable to afford a spot in the parade. The polices of their school prevent them from accepting monetary donations, but did not prevent the spot from being made available to them. Austin Pride does not normally allow for transferring spots but their President made an exception for these kids. We all want them to have a fabulous Pride experience they will never forget. Those of us who want to march in Pride will still be doing so as a group! The parade meet up will be at 7pm on Saturday. Our club has been invited by both the Weird City Sisters and The Iron Bear to march with them. If you are interested in meeting up with us and want the location details let me know. Happy Pride!
We are thankful to the leadership of Austin Pride for making this exception, and AgoL has thus developed a good standing with them for our donation of our spot. We look forward to participating as a group next year for sure!
The girls also discussed a new idea as a fundraiser and are looking into the availability of materials and creative ways to decorate them. We’re keeping the specifics in-group so as to surprise our community with them once they are completed.
We remind the girls to participate and support the Iron Bear’s Leather and Latex night each second Saturday of the month and to spread the word!
And for the most exciting news… our AgoL logo and Backpatch design has been completed! It is an absolutely beautiful logo designed by Elizabeth and Charlie Durban of Durban Industrial. Those girls that have met the Club membership requirements may now purchase their colors for their vests! We are so proud to represent our club with our own colors!
