    The Portlandia Mermaid Parade is a secular, noncommercial, and non-specific political event. This means that there is no single cause or agenda that can represent the diversity of the participants in attendance, and no corporate sponsorship. However local and small businesses may sponsor, and individuals and groups are encouraged to promote their secular--political, artistic messages which are in the general spirit of the event and its themes.

    A Portland version of the summer-solstice celebration, this parade takes place in mid-summer due to the NW inclement weather pattern in June. As an artistic framework, the parade celebrates oceanic myths, legends, symbology, spirituality and the water festivals associated with many global traditions including but not limited to: Celtic, Nordic, Pagan, African, and Eastern cultures. Although this event is NOT a specific protest, it is an organized gathering intended help raise critical consciousness, showcase artistic expression, promote a paradigm shift, and foster cultural, gender, and body positivity, in addition to promoting and creatively raising awareness around other social concerns within the general spirit of mermaid values, and the event.

    "Gender neutral" is 50 times gayer than gay.
