2017 ASHLEY RUKES GLBT PRIDE PARADE
Applications for the Parade are being accepted here and will be open through March 31, 2017.
In early April, Pride staff will review all applications to determine which organizations will participate (we always have more interest than available spots). The criteria used to determine participation will be:
- LGBTQ Community serving organizations and others with a strong record of supporting the LGBTQ Community; and
- The description of your parade unit. We are looking for variety and entertainment value in the parade, so groups just walking with a banner or groups driving a branded vehicle are less likely to be selected.
Application cost will remain at $50 for all applicants. For those not selected, please consider it to be a donation to Twin Cities Pride. Those selected to participate will have an additional fee to participate.
Note: A limited number of $100 scholarships are available to small nonprofits and community groups after the $50 application fee has been paid. Here is the 2017 Pride Scholarship Form if you would like to apply!
For your reference, last year’s participant information can be found here. 2017’s guide will be different.
Grandstand seats will be available in April.
