VANCOUVER, B.C. — Quebec’s gay and lesbian pride parade is returning to Victoria on Sunday.
The parade will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The parade will feature floats by performers from a variety of genres, including dancers, singers, singers and dancers, including the Vancouver Dance Theatre.
In 2018, the parade drew 1,300 people, organizers said.
The parade’s organizers, the Victoria City of Vancouver, say the event will highlight the history of Quebec’s LGBTQ community and offer a way for people to connect with each other, celebrate pride and celebrate the diversity of our city.
“The parade is an opportunity to reflect on the history and culture of our province,” said Michelle Smith, chief executive officer of the city of Vancouver.
“It’s also a time for people in our community to come together and celebrate our diversity, our diversity in our communities, our LGBTQ+ citizens and our history.”
Vancouver Pride, a community-driven, annual celebration, has been held annually since 2002.
Last year, it was held at the downtown Vancouver Convention Center, which is located near downtown Vancouver.
Vancouver’s Pride Parade will also feature music, food and arts and crafts.
The event will include a float by a Canadian folk dance troupe, as well as a dance-filled parade featuring floats by local singers and musicians, as Vancouver’s city music program.
