How to Start a Bitchin' Pride Parade


The last day in April marks Mizzou's annual Pride Parade in celebration of Pride Month. It's only the third time that the campus's LGBTQ Resource Center has put on a parade, but they've already gotten great news coverage and formed a dedicated following. So how can YOUR campus kick off its own bitchin' pride parade?





First of all, you gotta dress the part--from head...


Struby Struble, Coordinator of the LGBTQ Resource Center, is one of the hippest cats around. Note the Mizzou Tigers hat with strategically placed MU rainbow pin.





...to toe.

Did you guys, like, call each other the night before and decide to wear the same thing? Because that totally rocks.





Then, round up your posse.


Note the crazy-awesome balloon arch. You definitely want balloon arches in your posse.





Don't forget to pimp your ride.


Don't bother with your own crappy mascot. Just get a tiger to ride on the back of your wheels.





A pride parade is only as good as its flags.

Fly, my pretties!






Make sure your friends come to support you.


PFLAG, or Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, is a great bestie to have. 





Prepare your best chants and cheers.

2, 4, 6, 8! Equality in every state! Hey hey, ho ho! Homophobia's got to go! Hey hey, ho ho! Transphobia's got to go!





Most importantly, don't be afraid to be yourself.
