    Yea I saw that yesterday. Can’t believe they’re only now getting to the front. Figured it was all done already.

    Poor thing. Hopefully it takes a nice vacation and comes back refreshed and ready to handle us crazies.

    Quick note: The Zebra Coalition is far better a place for donations than GLSEN or whomever Disney’s donating to. Zebra helps temporarily house homeless LGBT+ youth in Orlando, offers financial support for education, helps people with mental health, and more. If you’re gonna buy some merch this pride month, buy Universal’s!

    I really love that they are using the "Love is Universal" slogan and logo they created for the Pulse memorial for this. Good to see it live on.

    They’ve been selling TM variations on this for months and has been extremely popular. I assume that’s why they went with a full roll out.

    Disney released their line this week as well. June is pride month. (Even though gay days was moved to August for some reason.)

    Ah, true. I keep forgetting that it’s almost a June already.

    Also, do you know if the gay days dates line up with Galaxy’s Edge opening? That could make some sense, if so.

    It's August 13th through 19th. I think the event coordinators claimed they moved it to get better room rates/better parking, and to not compete with other events of similar nature around the country. I think it was a dumb move, but that's me.

    Speaking of Pulse, does anyone remember where the memorial with the names of the Universal team member’s who were lost is? I know it’s in Hollywood, but I forgot exactly where.

    Above the entrance to Horror Make up, in a second story window of the Pantages theater facade.

    Probably relating to how despite the fact that each zebra is striped differently, they all are the same species. Or perhaps because they’re mostly highly social creatures that are very protective of their foals and harems as a whole. They haven’t really stated why that’s their name.

    The Gay Days "moved" was a company that took over a long standing tradition, and turned it into a corporate circuit party (originally it was a local BBS get together that morphed into a big day in the park, and Thursdays at Pleasure Island). The "traditional" non-corporate date is still the first Saturday in June. The circuit party moved to August.

    Oh I still imagine there’ll be plenty of redshirts in the parks next month, but if you look up the schedule for Walt Disney World Gay Days on google, you’re going to find their website, and see that it moved. I understand it was co-opted, but that’s what a lot of out of town people planning look to for scheduling details.
