Suggestions for Theme and Event Content requested from Community

The Pride Committee is requesting suggestions for the theme for the Y2K San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride celebrations. Anyone can make a suggestion but all suggestions must be in writing and received at the Pride office by October 6. Although anyone may make a suggestion only the general members of San Francisco Pride will vote on the suggestions. Membership of San Francisco Pride is open to anyone who supports the Mission of the organization and who submits a membership application form.

Commenting, Pride President Calvin Gipson said :

"Next year's event will be our 30th Anniversary of Freedom Marches, Pride Parades and Celebrations. The creativity of the San Francisco queer community is known worldwide and we need the best possible theme and the best ideas for programming as we prepare for this historical event. We're excited about the possibilities."

The call for theme suggestions is coupled with a request for suggestions for event content. Anyone with a great idea for something to be added to the Program or with a suggestion as to how to improve an existing feature should contact the Pride office for a set of guidelines. Again, the deadline is October 6.

The committee is also seeking bids for its Pride Guide next year and RFP documentation is available to interested parties by calling the office.

Pride Executive Director, Teddy Witherington said :

"The planning process for our Y2K event is gathering momentum. With a great theme, a sound organizational basis and stable finances the future looks bright indeed. We want to hear from talented people in the Community who have creative ideas about how to make the event more fabulous than ever."
