Are you ready for #PrideWeek in Vancouver? We proudly celebrate the 2SLGBTQAI+ (Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and additional sexual orientations and gender identities) community and recognize the history of 2SLGBTQAI+ people and the challenges they have faced in the fight for equality.
An important way to celebrate Pride is by educating yourself. You can read about the the history of Pride, and you can learn more about pronouns and why they’re important. Another way to celebrate Pride is to donate to organizations that uplift and support 2SLGBTQAI+ youth. And of course, you can celebrate by participating in Pride parades and other local events in your area. There are no shortage of ways to celebrate Pride.
Feeling like celebrating après-Pride parade in a less crowded area? Join us for our Pride Party on Sunday, July 31st from 4 – 7pm at Bute-Robson Plaza! We’ll have a DJ on-site and games for everyone to celebrate Pride! Plus, there are many options for food & drinks around. Be out and proud!
Don’t forget to stop by our Pride installation in front of PAUL Bakery & Restaurant. There’s no such thing as being extra in July! Have fun at our balloon-filled arch installation…take pics, bring your friends and have a great time #onRobson.
