In case you aren't aware, this weekend is one of THE largest annual event of our Community. Forget all the drama lama's out there, Pride is here!!
Pride is a very important, exciting and expressive time for all of us in our LGBTQ Community. With all the press surrounding recent events, now is the time to be downtown Vancouver, Sunday, August 5, 2012, supporting our friends, family, old and new in our choice to be outspoken and proud of who we are!
There will be masses of bodies, floats, marches, all with the common denominator, to unite as one! Be proud of who you are. It doesn't matter if you are a Kinkster, Fetishist, Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgender, Queer, Straight. What does matter is that you are there and enjoying everything about who you are! With those in your Community who support and accept you for all that makes you, you!
Friends near and dear to me who are out and very proud of who they are, have shared their painful stories about what it has been like to live behind the wall of shame. I stand beside them, as they stand for who they are, no longer ashamed.
Here is a link to the 2012 Vancouver Pride Guide for this years events, be sure to check it out!
Make sure you get here early as the parade route has changed a bit, and spots will fill up quickly! This literally is an all day event, starting around noon and ending when the day is done!
Below is a map of this year's route!
