Vancouver Pride 2011

Our third year in Vancouver’s Pride Parade and second year at Pride’s sunset Beach Festival was just plain awesome. We wanted to march with the Carnival Band again this year and they did not disappoint! Dueck provided the pick-up and plenty of swag that was easily swept up by the 640,000 happy parade watchers, and Home Depot donated the paint and materials to make our ‘home’ look great. There are many photos from the parade and they were all taken by Jean Cueta. Jean works for RainCity Housing but is also an amazing photographer. Check out more of her work!

The rest of the photos from the parade are at our Flickr page, and you should check out the Carnival Band’s Flickr page, too.


YouTube is already a buzz with great videos of this year’s parade, but below are some of our favourites. This clip is first cuz we show up first – no waiting! It’s from ‘butchnews’. If you find other great footage, let us know and we’ll embed or add the links.

This clip is from ‘welc2bc’s channel. Our fabulous paraders, the house and the Carnival Band show up around 8:50. Also check out their ‘Preparation’ video and see if you can find snippets of the RainCity crew.
