Each year Vancouver welcomes the world to its annual Gay Pride celebrations. Culminating with the Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival the first weekend in August each year, the Vancouver Pride celebrations consist of a week long series of events celebrating everything gay!

Vancouver PrideEducate, Liberate, Celebrate!

Vancouver’s 2010 Pride Week festivities officially take place from July 30th to August 2nd, 2010 but also includes a large number of pre-Pride events in the days leading up to Pride Week.

It all culminates with the Annual Pride Parade and Sunset Beach Pride Festival beginning at Noon on Sunday, August 1st, 2010.

In 2008, the Vancouver Pride Society adopted a three-year theme of Educate, Liberate, Celebrate focusing on one of the three themes each year. In 2010, the focus is on Liberate and what it means to be free. While Canada has made strong steps towards an equality for all persons there are still some hurdles to overcome. Outside Canada the GLBTQ communities in many countries have little or no protection and continue to be persecuted.

The Vancouver Pride Society challenges you to make Pride your political action this summer : at Pride, we stand in solidarity with those who fight for liberation around the world. We march for those who can’t walk with pride; we speak for those who are silenced and oppressed. Show up, be visible and be proud.
