On the Road - Call for donations - 25/10/2015

Date - 25/10/2015

  • Event Goals (Bengalore Pride Fund Raiser)
  • Awareness of the LGBT Movement
  • Publicity of Pride Events and the march date
  • Collection of donations from public
  • Providing members of the community the chance to contribute
It was a sunny Sunday on MG Road and we arrived in good spirits around 4:20pm. We begun the event by donning our lovingly designed sandwich boards and looked around for our first contact.
We decided to split up into groups of two and we went about talking about pride to passers by, informing them about the various events and their dates and requesting them to provide contributions. Groups: Bikash & Kamlesh, Chanakya & Naveen, Anand & Scott
We moved along MG Road, Brigade Road, Church Street and nearby areas.

We met people across the spectrum, people who were extremely enthusiastic, some who were bemused, some who were in a hurry, some who were curious and many who were generous and wanted to know how they could contribute more
When taking contributions we took down people's names and the amounts they were sharing with the movement and we were incredibly overwhelmed by these allies. The day ended on a very jubilant note and we hope to engage with people across Bangalore more in the future
