You know it’s a good party when a troupe of dancing cable guys show up.
Recently, we joined more than 400,000 LGBT supporters and Grand Marshal Maria Menounos, host of Extra TV, for the Los Angeles PRIDE parade in West Hollywood. We rode the 1.1 mile parade route in a pimped-out Time Warner Cable float, which we shared with our local partner Project Angel Food (PAF). A vital part of the LA community, the PAF organization delivers meals to more than 12,000 people each week living with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses in the Los Angeles area.
More than 120 Time Warner Cable employees came out to support the local LGBT community and volunteer at the parade. Some handed out fun freebies to the crowd, like t-shirts and bandanas, while others marched the parade route as part of a human pride flag formation. Freebies and flags aside, the star attraction of our volunteer effort were the professional “cable dancers” we recruited for the event.
