Happy Pride Vancouver!

Well it's a weekend of festivals, that's for sure! Powell Street, Spirit of the Sea, fireworks, and of course, PRIDE!

There are so many Pride events happening too!

Saturday is the annual Dyke March!

And on Sunday of course, is the Pride Parade!

Then there are all the parties... there are too many to list, but here are a select few:

Flygirl Chicks-Ahoy boat cruise and parties

Trucker Disco at the Electric Owl (new venue!)

Rapture: Heatwave pool party with Jujubee from Rupaul's Drag Race!

And so much more that I can't even begin to list! Your best bet is to check out this list of events over on GayVan.com!

Pride is definitely a joyous and celebratory occasion. It also gives me a moment to pause and reflect on how far we've come as a community, how I've changed as a person, and how the city has changed in terms of the queer spaces around town. It's a time to remember those who are no longer with us and to reconvene with those we haven't seen for awhile.

Happy Pride, Vancouver!
