June is Gay Pride Month, and regardless of your sexual orientation, the Astroglide Pride Parades in Boston and San Diego are incredible parties/concerts/celebrations. When we were asked to find brand ambassadors who would like to attend, the only problem was narrowing down the options.
Aside from being ridiculous amounts of fun, it’s also an incredibly meaningful event for the gay community specifically, and it was important to us that we honor that and provide the best possible brand ambassadors. Gay pride month may be a party now, but that’s only because of the countless thousands who sacrificed their dignity and freedom to help create a world where who we love doesn’t dictate how we’re treated.
Back to the party
The crowds lined the streets, and while you may think you can imagine it – you can’t. The noise was incredible and the cheering the dancing, singing and the feeling of camaraderie between everyone in attendance was palpable.
Our team’s job was to hand out Astroglide products to people along the parade route and interact with the crowd. Handing out free stuff, and dancing at a party isn’t a tough gig, but we still like to pretend it’s work.
It’s events like this that nobody wants to end, and we received some wonderful feedback from the client, but the comments from our team probably summed it up best.
“I had a blast at the event!”
“Thank you so much for booking me for this event! I had a great time, and everyone was so nice!”
