The Vancouver Pride Society is looking for your nominations for the 2010 Pride Parade Grand Marshals.
According to the Pride Society nomination criteria, a Grand Marshall is someone who inspires with their courage and dedication in our communities. Grand Marshalls will be chosen in three categories:
- Local Hero: a member of our local community who has made a significant contribution to the LGBTTQ community
- National/International Hero: someone from another part of Canada or outside the country who represents the ideals of equality and respect for all people
- Role model: a widely known individual renowned for their words and deeds on behalf of LGBTTQ issues and interests
Last year the three Grand Marshals were: Janine Fuller, Local Hero (pictured here); Jeremy Dias, National Hero; Cleve Jones, Role Model; plus Cindy Kampmeinert was recognized posthumously as Pride Hero.
