For an early morning, I was surely running a lot. I was doing everything from propping up tents and tables to running individual water bottles for other volunteers. I was mainly stationed in the Red Zone, where Miles and I made sure that the entrances were secure and no one underage would be able to peek inside. I fixed tarps, exchanged supplies between the "Out Memphis" Board. We started at six, but I did not end until 10:15, where another individual had to relieve my position as Ticketmaster. If you are not wearing light clothing and athletic shoes, your feet would be really sore... Otherwise, it was a great time and I got to meet SO MANY great people.
I enjoyed my volunteer experience at Pride Fest. It was very refreshing to be given tasks that are usually given to men because they're viewed as "stronger" or "more resilient." I was lifting tables, setting up booths, and hanging decorations with my women and gender studies group. All of the other volunteers were so sweet and I met a lot of valuable people just by volunteering.
Great team and a great event.
