The Vancouver Pride Society is seeking nominations for the 2011 Pride Parade Grand Marshals.
According to the Vancouver Pride Society nomination criteria, a Grand Marshal is someone who inspires us with their courage and dedication. Grand Marshals will be chosen in three categories:
- International Hero: someone from outside Canada who represents the ideals of equality and respect for LGBTTQ people
- Role model: a widely known individual renowned for their words and deeds on behalf of LGBTTQ issues and interests
- Local Hero: someone who has made a significant contribution to our own LGBTTQ community
In 2010 the Vancouver Pride Grand Marshals were:
- Nikolai Alekseev, International Role Model (pictured right)
- Candis Cayne, Role Model
- Barb Snelgrove, Local Hero
- Catherine White Holman, Posthumous Pride Hero
