About Vancouver Gay Pride

Vancouver Gay Pride 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, Vancouver Gay Pride 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, making it the fourth country in the world to do so. 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 beautful warm weather to celebrate your pride in.

Program of Vancouver Gay Pride

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 Vancouver Gay Pride on Sunday, August 4.

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 Vancouver Gay Pride, there are plenty of other festivities taking place in the lead-up, which are TBC at this stage so stay tuned.

Vancouver Gay Pride features one of the largest LGBTQ parades in North America, so get ready to party in style, and we'll meet you there!

Stay gay in...
