Last year we had an unofficial troop through the crowd at Pride which turned out to be very successful. This year we tried to make it official but costs got in the way, primarily insurance, table space rental and general red tape. So we’re back to “unofficial”.

I’m hosting a party at my apartment on Saturday June 23 from 11am. Around 1pm we’ll suit up and head on over to Church Street for a walk through the crowd. Bring nothing but your gear. Food and drink will be provided.

Costumes: You will be hot. Dave T can attest to nearly fainting in his black officer’s uniform one year. Let's avoid that. You may want to avoid heavy outfits or modify them for ventilation. IE: capes can be swapped out for a Pride flag, undersuits can be mesh etc… NOTE: You will get wet. Not soaked but you might experience a good blast from someone’s water gun. Sometimes it’s friendly fire. Maybe a good idea to keep the electronics at home.

Being Extra: Raid your local Dollarama for boas, rainbow flags, rainbow tape and fabulous stuff - drag up your kit. Grab a water gun! Prop Weapons are ok but make sure there you have the orange muzzle markings clearly displayed. But trust me, you will want a water gun instead.

Timing: It’s about a 15 min walk over to the celebration from my apartment which we’ll do buckets off, to conserve energy. We’ll do one pass through the crowd, stopping for water gun filling and hydration at every street corner. You will be swarmed for pictures and/or sprayed with water. Around 3pm we can head back to my house, change and hit Stout pub for dinner (they have a nice back yard patio and TONS of craft beer).

This is open to all. Bring your spouse/partner/significant alien along. The more the merrier! And if you just want to Handle, please come along too. I’d like a good many handlers along for safety sake, of course.

Bring the kids? You cool with mild public nudity? Then bring ‘em! It will be the day of the Dyke March so there may be some bare chests, male and female, maybe even dangly male bits. Up to you.

So sign up below as you usually do for a troop:

Name / Costume or Handler / preferred drag name

(That last bit is totally up to you. If you are unable to be creative enough, Doug Bobafuss Cotrell will be happy to supply you with one)
