URGENT UPDATE ON WORLDPRIDE MARCH:
Due to a last minute change by the organizers of WorldPride that was announced today (Thursday 28th) for the first time, the start time for the parade parade has been moved up from 1:00pm to 11:00am.
As a result, we will now be meeting at 10:00am on the morning of July 7th, at the Baker Street station. Look for ace flags!
We will be leaving to walk to the start of the parade route as soon as people are get there, so please try to arrive a bit early if possible. We’ll be sending out mobile contact numbers closer to the day of the march.
We’re not entirely sure why they’ve done this, they claim money issues though how the two are linked isn’t clear. They’ve upset more than a few people but despite this it’s still important that we have a good, strong presence on the world stage for visibility.
We want to emphasise that this in no way alters plans for the Conference on Sunday.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, we found out about this today and it’s exciting news for all [/sarcasm]. Seriously though, it’s important info so spread it about even if you aren’t going and lets all glare at the event organisers.
You can also send me or the AVEN PT tumblr an ask if you don’t want to use e-mail.
Hope plenty of people are still going to come, despite it all it’ll still be a great day out.
We’re advising that if people have to change travel times, only change the ones needed to get to London, leave the return arrangements the same. Probably they wont change times back to the original but if they do best not to close any doors.
