Parade of Cross-Dressing Brides To Invade Long Beach
|Brides of March|
Brides of March is happening on March 31. Therefore you have two weeks to get a thrift-store wedding dress, chop it up so it fits (there's a how-to guide here) and practice your strut. The parade begins at noon at Shannon's on Pine and will make its way through bars, landmarks and parks.
A bit about the origin of the event:
Michele Michele got the idea for this annual gathering at a San Francisco thrift store in 1999. "I saw a rack of used wedding dresses and realized how often the dreams of an idea marriage had failed and how so much of this dream has been fabricated in order to fuel the ever-increasing consumption of new products."
Do you want to spend a day boozing in lace and tulle while bringing forth a social message?
Say, "I do."
