Tie-dye event to open pride celebrations

The UWindsor Pride Committee will kick off Windsor-Essex Pride Week with a tie-dye event in front of the Green Bean Café on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 1 to 3 p.m.

UWinPride T-shirts will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis for $10 each at the event. Students with financial concerns may choose to bring one of their own items to dye or talk to organizers about a complementary shirt.

“Come on out, dye a shirt, and then go down to Green Bean and get one of their delicious baked goods or beverages” says co-chair Ashlyne O’Neil. “Green Bean has always been an affirming and safe place for queer folks, and is a place beloved by many UWindsor community members.”

The café is located on the lower level of 2320 Wyandotte St. W.

The event is in preparation for the Windsor-Essex Pride Parade on Sunday, Aug. 13. Interested in representing the University community by marching with UWinPride? Complete this brief survey to indicate your interest.
