Cleveland Pride a focus for preparations for Gay Games 9

From Anthony Glassman's report on the 2011 Cleveland Pride parade and festival in the Ohio Gay People's Chronicle:

After the parade, attendees noticed something different this year at the festival: shorter lines at the gates because a second entrance was added, leading directly to the food booths. Also, instead of stopping and having a Pride volunteer put a disposable wristband on them, fairgoers were handed an orange Gay Games commemorative rubber wristband which they were asked to put on themselves, streamlining the entry process.


This year’s Pride was, to a great extent, the beginning of a road to a very specific destination.

“The goal is to use Cleveland Pride over the next three years to gather our allies and the LGBT community and grow it proportionately, leading up to 2014,” [Cleveland Pride president Ted] Saporito noted, adding that the idea is to have Cleveland Pride 2014 roll seamlessly into the 2014 Gay Games in Cleveland.
