Vancouver Pride Society

Vancouver Pride Society

The Vancouver Pride Parade started from a rogue, community-activist group and has become an annual parade and celebration that reflects the diversity of the community we represent.

Although, the Pride Parade has grown significantly we maintain a focus on human rights, inclusiveness, and community participation. We proudly provide world-class arts and cultural festivals and an annual parade that showcases and promotes the Lesbian Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirited, and Queer (LGBTTQ) community, the Westend and the City of Vancouver to its residents and visitors alike.

2013 Vancouver Pride Parade & Festivals

The Vancouver Pride Parade & Festivals work to create a strong sense of identity, inclusiveness and belonging for the LGBTTQ community and hosts a number of events throughout the summer, beginning with Eastside Pride on June 29th, 2013 and culminating with the spectacular Pride Parade and Sunset Beach Pride Festival on August 4th, 2013. In 2013our focus is celebrating the 35th anniversary of pride; we celebrate our community, our history, diversity and our Pride!
