Category 2: Attending
You register by sending a brief note to pinkfest@lgbt saying you intend to join us.
There is no registration fee, per se, but everybody's on one's own for such things as:
Here's the suggested list of things you'll need to do:
That's it. Easy, isn't it? :)
No. There are a number of resources available for TG teens, but Pinkfest is not one of them, sorry.
Although the age of 18 is considered the age of majority in some locations for some purposes, we are not allowing people who are under the age of 21 to attend, sorry.
Those under 21 are not allowed to enter several of the venues used for Pinkfest. It is unfair to invite people to Pinkfest only to have to tell them that they are not allowed at certain activities.
It is suggested that those who are of age 18 - 20 who want to attend Pinkfest do so immediately after their 21st. birthday.
Spouses and SO's of age 21 or older are most welcome to attend and to participate with the group.
As for kids, some of the daytime activities might interest them, such as the Planetarium, but we do not recommend bringing them to Pinkfest.
If they're over 21 and know how to behave as a lady or gentleman, please feel free to bring them along. The more the merrier! :)
Well, I suppose it would be shortly before the end of the affair.
Seriously, if you decide at the last minute that you would like to join us, you will be welcome.
Due to our informal nature, we won't know until just before Pinkfest happens. We'll announce the headcounts in our mailing list.
Yes, admirers are welcome. We've always been open to anybody who identifies with the theme of Pinkfest, and who agrees to behave as a lady or a gentleman (or both).
Speaking very freely, admirers do have a reputation of coming on very strong, and it is this behavior, not the mere fact that they are admirers, that makes them unwelcome at some t* gatherings.
Although this was written for another event, we would suggest that those who consider themselves to be admirers and want to attend Pinkfest thoroughly read the Diva Las Vegas Admirers' Guide. Most everything in that guide will also apply to Pinkfest.
Anyone of any gender, orientation, and persuasion will most likely be welcome at Pinkfest as long as they behave appropriately and respect the others who will be present.
Yes, a significant percentage of our attendees live in the greater Chicago area. Join the mailing list as usual and state that you are in the local area when you send in your registration e-mail.
The times and locations of the various activities, along with directions and instructions for locating the group, will be given to those who register. One of the organizers will always be available via cell phone, so there will be no concern about failing to make contact or losing contact.
Most definitely !! :)
