Working draft of Noe's press release: https://piratenpad.de/p/NoeBallotPR
Pride parade. Event theme is "Be Yourself, Change the World". Perhaps we do "Be a pirate, change the world" or "Vote pirate change the world". Rainbow colors would be nice. Thu 6pm: sign making party at Kamelamela HQ. Foam board likely preferable to (flimsy) poster board. Will ask volunteers to bring supplies.
