Vancouver Pride Announces 2017 Theme

The Vancouver Pride Society has announced that the theme for the 39th edition of Vancouver Pride Celebrations will be ‘My Pride’. Vancouver Pride Society recognizes that for each individual, Pride week can be a very unique personal experience with both celebratory and deeply emotional components.

The past year we have heard from many community groups about their concerns and embarked on a process of community consultation and a commitment to work with groups so they may feel comfortable at our events. Through community consultation dialogues and survey results, VPS has already begun collecting some of your Pride stories.

We will be using innovative methods to continue collecting your Pride stories throughout our 2017 Pride season. Look for interactive art installations at our events that invite participants to reflect and share as well as our “Living Library” where knowledge holders and storytellers will be available to tell their histories of living in the Vancouver LGBTQ2+ community. We hope you will share your Pride stories and experiences with words, photos and videos online.
