Start: Robson and Thurlow
Ends: Sunset Beach Festival Site
Gay Pride Vancouver brings together members of the LGBTQ community and their allies to celebrate the unique spirit and culture of the rainbow community by producing quality, inclusive events including the annual Pride Parade. Starting as a low-key demonstration in 1978, Gay Pride Vancouver has grown into a lively, outspoken, and larger than life event which colors the city streets each year.
As a whole, Canada is an extremely LGBTQ-friendly country, having legalized gay marriage as far back as 2005. It comes as no surprise then that its annual pride celebrations go off. As the event usually takes place towards the end of July, you can also expect beautiful warm weather to celebrate your pride in.
2019 will mark Vancouver Gay Pride’s 41st edition, so expect the biggest celebration and crowd yet! From July 21, there'll be a host of different LGBTQ-related events transpiring throughout the city, all culminating to the official Gay Pride Vancouver 2019 on Sunday, August 4.
On the Sunday, the fun kicks off at 11am with a festival at Sunset Beach, where you can expect speeches and live performances. The Vancouver Gay Pride Parade starts one hour later at 12pm, meeting at Robson and Thurlow, before heading to the Sunset Beach Festival site. While the Sunset Beach Festival and the Pride Parade may be the highlights of Pride Vancouver 2019, there are plenty of other festivities taking place in the lead-up, including a Pride Picnic in the Park on July 21 and the Ruff Party at The Pint on Friday, August 2.
Gay Pride Vancouver features one of the largest LGBTQ parades in North America, so get ready to party in style, and we'll meet you there!
