We love participating in PrideNW and for our seventh year we teamed up with the Rose City Rollers, joining them in the parade and being their booth neighbours! Last year was the first year we marched in the parade, so it was a fun sequel to share the parade time with other hardcore sock lovers!
As before, our doggie staff was represented by Mr. Ferous, who isn’t quite as little as he was last year.
Dreamers and friends waved socks, hooped hoops and spun staffs, all rocking our favourite legwear. The Extraordinary Harvest Rainbows made a heavy appearance; I think they may be one of the Dreamers’ favourites!
We were booth neighbours with Rose City Rollers (who we love!) and our lovely logo lady was part of RCR’s photo booth, they’ve got a Facebook album full of some great shots on both Saturday and Sunday of the festival.
All in all, another great Pride event! Thank you everyone who visited our booth, used a secret code, cheered us on in the parade and all of you who support us and our Sock Dreams every day! Check out our gallery from this year, Dreamer Sixten got some great photos!
Okay socksters, round two! Today’s phrase is “no T, no shade!”
Just swing by our booth (#B7) at Portland’s Pride festival, werk the phrase into conversation, and you could win big! The first 6 people to say the code will receive a FREE Sock Dreams gift card for $5, $10, or even $20– it’ll be a surprise!
Have fun at Pride, Portlanders! ♥
We’ve been having so much fun with code word giveaways that we’ll be doing it again at our Pride booth this weekend!
Just come to Portland’s Pride festival, stop by booth #B7, wiggle your ruby slippers, and use the phrase “friend of Dorothy”. If you’re one of the first 6 people to say it, you’ll receive a FREE Sock Dreams gift card for $5, $10, or even $20– it’ll be a surprise!
If you’re not one of the first six, don’t get your rainbows in a twist! Come back bright and early tomorrow (Sunday 6/16), when we’ll have six more gift cards– and a NEW code! ♥
Historically, LGBT Pride month is at this time because of the beginning of the Stonewall Inn riots on June 28th, 1969. On that day in the early morning in Greenwich Village’s most fabulous street, Christopher Street, the homosexual community decided they’d had it with police raids and laws that made them a marginalized group. They began a series a violent protests that many mark as the beginning of the Gay Liberation movement, a movement that has continued and brought gay rights to the forefront.
Year after year, the anniversary of the Stonewall has been celebrated in an increasing number of cities across the US, and year after year, we come closer and closer to the goal of normalization and open mindedness that the people at Stonewall were fighting for.
We are proud to participate in this legacy by supporting Portland Pride, and we hope all of you will go out to your various cities’ Prides, or create a Pride of your own!
Last year we were approached by the newest LGBT publication in town, PQ Monthly, to sponsor an event they were starting called Gay Skate.
This is a regular event that is meant for LGBT families to come and have fun roller skating in an atmosphere of acceptance. Gay Skate takes place every third Monday at Oaks Park Skate Rink, which is right near our Sock Dreams shop.
One of the best things that’s come out of sponsoring Gay Skate, besides supporting a great event, is it has strengthened our relationship not only with PQ Monthly, but with our Portland roller derby team The Rose City Rollers.
This month instead of doing the usual split ad with RCR, as the Rose City Rollers are called, we are combining our efforts and creating a photo ad in the shared space featuring LGBT skaters in Sock Dreams socks! One of most special pieces of this ad is being able to have one of the young players of the RCR team, The Rosebuds, in the photo shoot, as gay skate is geared toward LGBT youth.
We look forward to working with RCR at our upcoming Portland Pride, where we will have the most epic booth of all times!
