The Vancouver Pride Week is a colourful, vibrant affair, celebrating the city's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) community and its many supporters in a variety of shows, festivals, parties, and the ever-popular Pride Parade.

Each year, a special team comes up with a theme and specific image. In recent years, the focus has been on issues and battles faced by the LGBT community but in a more celebratory than political manner. For a week, beautiful Vancouver is transformed into a rainbow-coloured riot, fun is the order of the day, and the more outrageous the costume, event, or party the better.

Venue: Pride Parade starts at Denman and Robson Streets

Date: 5 August 2018
