2009 Pride Parade

August 10, 2009

Amongst the glitter, glamour and gold, I sat throughout the crowd watching the fabulous floats at this year’s Pride Parade, which was once again outstanding, and (way too much) fun! Some of the highlights were the Vision Vancouver float – the first time an entire city council has been on a float together. The clever use of “city streets signs” replaced with words such as “PRIDE” and “SAY NO 2 H8”, made the Vision float one of my favourites. Cleve Jones was one of the Grand Marshals this year, which was really inspiring to see him in the flesh! Cleve Jones was a good friend of Harvey Milk, and has been a key player in keeping Milk’s memory alive, and continues to spread the message of liberation against oppression. It was so nice to see the whole city come together to celebrate being proud of loving whoever the hell you want! Educate, liberate, celebrate! –David Ng
