Grand Marshall Nominations

Applications Close April 15

The Vancouver Pride Parade is BACK this year and we are now accepting applications for our 3 Grand Marshals.

Grand Marshals can be groups, individuals, or posthumous individuals who have dedicated their time and energy to creating a world that is more equitable and inviting. As we celebrate Vancouver Pride 2022, we recognize those whose activism contributes to the betterment of our communities while inspiring others to join. We encourage nominations of folks who are representative of 2SLGBTQAI+ communities whether they are in a public light or not. We look forward to reviewing nominations and will be reaching out to potential Grand Marshals this Spring.

Grand Marshals have historically been 2SLGBTQAI+ serving groups or individuals who have made a positive difference in our communities. While many past Grand Marshals have been local to Vancouver, we are open to receiving nominations from around the world. Chosen Grand Marshals take on a variety of duties representing the current Pride movement. These duties often include media engagements, attending events, and being apart of the Annual Pride Parade.

If you would like want to someone, or themselves, please do so by April 15, 2022 here.
