The Nova Scotia Federation of Labour is the overall sponsor of the float and is inviting all affiliates to participate in the float building and decorating in Halifax.

“The Pride Parade is an opportunity for NSGEU members to come together with other unions in support of diversity and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex issues,” says Tammy Gillis, Chair of NSGEU’s Human Rights Committee.

In Halifax: We will be decorating the float on the morning of July 25th at 10am at the Parade starting area where Upper Water Street meets Cornwallis Street (CFB Halifax Parking lot on Valour Way).

If you are interested in building the frame of the float, people are meeting at 677 Lucasville Rd., in Lucusville, on Friday July 24, 2015 at 7 pm.  All are welcome to assist.  No drill or saw refused!

The parade begins in Halifax on Saturday, July 25 at 1 p.m.
