Happy Pride All July


Happy Pride All July!

“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.” – Amelia Earhart
Put a little adventure in your life. Traditionally the Amazing Women of VLSCS! take a summer break. But this year we are trying something a little different, and we hope our members and friends will join in as The Westshore will continue in full swing with great indoor and outdoor activities for members, friends, and families. And Victoria’s first ever lesbian ukulele band, the Lukuleles, will play on. New members welcome starting on the 15th. So, venture out to The Westshore for Coffee Talk + Pride Stories, a Beach Picnic and a Drive-In Movie. Or buy an Hawaiian shirt and take up the ukulele. Plus tune in for surprise popup adventures scaled to your ability and the summertime weather.

Thursday July 4
Lukuleles Pride Parade
Dress Rehearsal

Private Location 5:00 PM
Parade participants & those attending Monday rehearsals, let’s get together a few days right before the parade to make sure we’re all on the same float! Wear your parade t-shirt. Bring your ukulele & music book, a music stand if you have one, a lawn chair, whatever you’d like to drink, your partner, if you have one, and she’d like to join us ?. We’ll have some vegetarian chilli, BBQ turkey sausages & buns, salad, assorted squares, and tea and coffee. Dress Rehearsal & Party is on, rain or shine!
