Lunar New Year Parade 2011!

February 1, 2011

Dear Friends,

We are just TWO DAYS away from parade day as the Asian LGBTQ contingent in NYC’s Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade!!

We need you, your friends & family to come fly our colorful fish kites, hold banners and posters, or just be part of our historic contingent. If you cannot march with us, we still really need you to be an enthusiastic member of the crowd/cheerleader and join us for food afterwards!

If you can help out earlier in the day to carry our banners and posters, please meet us at 10:00-11:30AM at Project Reach (39 Eldridge St., 4th Floor.) Please email if you can come early to help. Otherwise…..


SUNDAY, FEB. 6, 2011
12 NOON enter the parade staging area at BOWERY AND HESTER STREET. Tell them you are with Lunar New Year for All and the parade coordinators will show you to our contingent.
Please leave yourself extra time to arrive at the meeting location. It will be very crowded and very difficult to maneuver through the streets.
Contact phone numbers: Karen (718) 350-7279 and Olympia (917) 518-2277

Post-Parade CELEBRATION: We will all head over to eat Dim Sum together immediately after marching.
~3:00pm-ish at Jing Fong Golden Harvest Restaurant
18 Elizabeth Street, just south of Canal
Ask for “Q-Wave” tables. Approximately $10-$15 per person.
(Everyone is welcome to join us with family & friends, even if you cannot march in the parade.)

Please send us an email at with your name and # of people that will come with you to the Parade and/or Dim Sum. It will really help us to have a good idea of how many people to expect.

Thanks & See you soon!
