Vancouver’s first gay pride parade in decades is coming to a close.article Vancouver, B.C. — The pride parade that kicked off on June 16, 2015, is winding down.
It is a celebration that has drawn in many who were there to celebrate the diversity of Vancouver’s diverse communities and the city’s multiculturalism.
The parade was billed as a way for the city to acknowledge the diversity it has to offer, said Jennifer Stannard, executive director of the City of Vancouver Pride Society.
But it was not just about that.
It was about the many people who have stood up, and in the end, it was a celebration of people that are so often invisible, she said.
The Vancouver Pride parade was supposed to be Vancouver’s pride parade, and the organizers are planning to celebrate a “big celebration” for the pride parade.
It will also be an opportunity for people to celebrate their diversity and celebrate who they are, said Pride Society President Steve Stannards, who took over the role from Pride Minister and Mayor Gregor Robertson.
The march is a reminder of what it means to be an immigrant in Vancouver, said Stephanie Mancuso, a mother of two and member of the Vancouver LGBTQ community.
She and other people who attended the event said the parade was an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the many immigrants who live in Vancouver and around the world.
We’ve come together as a community, we’ve come as a city, and we’ve made this a celebration, she added.
The pride parade has attracted a diverse group of people, many of whom have come to Vancouver to celebrate diversity, said Stanns.
Some people came to celebrate an opportunity that was open to them, said Mancoso, who said the diversity and diversity of the city is something she and others are proud of.
We are proud to be Canadian and we are proud that we are a multicultural city, she continued.
But some people who were part of the march felt the parade wasn’t inclusive enough.
Many felt that the parade didn’t take into account their experiences, or the diverse identities of the people who attend it, said Ms. Mancsoso.
“I have been at the Pride event since 2006, so I understand what it’s like to be marginalized, to be different and to be the outcast.
We’re all here to celebrate and to celebrate,” she said, referring to the diverse crowd.
She said the march was a positive step forward, but the parade is only a start.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do and to do it better,” she added, referring back to the parade and what’s to come.
“We have to have pride every day,” said Ms Mancso.
“The more people we have to celebrate together, the better.”
The Vancouver city council will have an opportunity at its June 24 meeting to consider changes to the pride march that would include the addition of more diverse participants and other steps to ensure the parade meets the standards of diversity that were established in the 2015 Pride policy.
The city is still reviewing the citywide pride policy and is taking feedback on what could be improved, said Councillor and Pride Society president Chris Pappas.
The council will consider any suggestions it receives from the public, he said.
“I think the council is going to look at what is needed to make sure that we’re celebrating diversity in Vancouver in a way that is inclusive of everyone,” said Coun.
“And we have the capacity to do that, and that’s what the city will be looking at and discussing.”
