A personal appeal from San Francisco Pride’s Grand Marshall, Bishop Christopher Senyonjo of Uganda:

“I need you to volunteer and help bring Global Equality to our LGBT brothers and sisters!” 

Bishop Christopher Senyonjo

As London and San Francisco celebrate LGBT Pride with the theme “Global Equality”, what could be more satisfying than sharing PRIDE with LGBT people from 76 countries where it is still illegal to be gay or to access HIV prevention and care services? The bishop will be selling beautiful African crafts and clothing made by the Women of the St. Paul’s Centre in Kampala to support their gay/straight alliance.

He needs volunteers to staff the booth at San Francisco Pride on June 23rd and 24th where these will be sold. Shifts will be in three hour blocks. We also need other volunteers to collect donations as part of the Community Partnerships Program to help the bishop and other community organizations in the Bay area. General volunteer shifts begin 9-1.30 and 1-6 p.m. on Saturday 23rd

These include collecting donations at:

  • ·        All entrances to the Pride Celebration in the Civic Center
  • ·        Donations booths at the Civic Center
  • ·        On UN Plaza and Civic Center

On Sunday 24th shifts begin at the same times and volunteer opportunities are the same as Saturday as well as staffing beverage booths throughout the Pride site.

A portion of all funds collected by our general volunteers will go to support the work of Global Equality by bringing 26 people to the World AIDS conference in July where it is illegal to receive HIV prevention and care services. All of the funds collected for the sale of crafts will go to the women’s project in Kampala.
