160 parade entries and with a crowd of 530,000 spectators, this
is the MUST SEE event of the year. Our expanded route takes use through
the downtown shopping district on Robson St, along the West End beach
and ends at the Pride Festival site at Sunset Beach. In 2009, with the
extended route, you can be sure to have a front-row view of the largest
celebration in Western Canada!
Vancouver Pride Society brings together members of the Gay, Lesbian,
Bisexual and Transgender community, their friends, allies and supporters
in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the GLBT community by
producing quality, inclusive events such as the Pride Parade and
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There aren't
many cities in the world that offer Vancouver's combination of big-city
lifestyle and healthy outdoor living.
Vancouver is a fun, safe, clean and gay friendly cosmopolitan city with
spectacular natural beauty. Our snow capped mountains, temperate
rainforest and Pacific Ocean provide us with numerous places to ski,
hike, play and explore.
Vancouver has a long standing reputation as a progressive and tolerant
city that is accepting of our thriving GLBT community and embraces our
differences. Vancouver has one of the largest gay populations in Canada
and our GLBT community is a key part of our city's social, economic and
cultural life. We are thrilled to showcase our city and we welcome the
opportunity to share our
Vancouver with you and the world.
It strives to produce events that reflect the pride the GLBT community
has in itself and its contribution to the larger community. In doing so,
the Society strengthens a sense of community and as such contributes to
the vibrancy, health and overall well- being of all persons in the GLBT
