All Vancouver Pride events take place on the unceded, occupied, traditional and ancestral territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw {Squamish), and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We realize that the work we are able to do could not happen without the wisdom and intelligence of the two-spirit people and organizations that have taught us, stuck with us, and led us through organizational changes to better serve our 2SLGBTQAI+ communities. We hold our hands up to thank them for their brilliance, resilience, patience and strength.

From 8PM—9PM, Introvert Hour will turn down the music and provide low lighting for the Unicorn Craft Station. Enjoy crafting in a nightclub and all the activities Unicorn Disco has to offer!

Stay tuned for more activities to be announced.

Unicorns can WIN BIG in the annual Unicorn Costume Contest, with prizes for the Most Creative, the Horniest Horn and Best Group. Ball attendees are encouraged to dress to impress for their chance at winning! Stay tuned for full prize information.

Featuring Willow Pill and Kornbread the Snack

Willow Pill is an adorable, fun and twisted little doll that hails from both your sweetest dreams and your grossest nightmares. In order to encapsulate the human experience, Willow’s drag is simultaneously joyful & sad, sexy & nasty, jaw-dropping & embarrassing. Willow got her start as a rising starlet in the sticky clubs of Denver, Colorado but now resides in Chicago, Illinois where she has solidified herself as a glorified clown. Currently, Willow is living her dream as a competitor on season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. So take a Willow Pill, and get ready for the craziest trip of your life.

Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté is an American drag performer and Miss Congeniality of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14.
